We had to share this picture of Knowsley Road's longest residing neighbour with the newest addition! Beryl Atherton opened the party - she has lived on the street for 60 years. Newest resident, Harry Lea, at just 5 days old, also made a brief appearance.

Beacons lit across north west

As last night's Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace was drawing to a close, thousands of beacons were being lit around the country to celebrate the Queen's 60 year reign.

A network of flames criss-crossed the country, with a number of beacons lighting up the night sky here in the north west.

Our correspondent Andy Bonner joined the build-up to the event.
