TfL celebrations

TfL services carried up to a third more customers, during the Diamond Jubilee, with central London Tube journeys up by 50 per cent on Sunday.

Traffic in London was down by around 40 per cent as people acted on travel advice to avoid disruption, like bridge closures, caused by the celebrations.

London's Transport Commissioner, Peter Hendy CBE, said:

"The weekend's Diamond Jubilee celebrations were a fantastic occasion and a great moment for London. I want to thank Londoners and visitors for acting on our travel advice so that we could support the millions of journeys people made."

Four days of festivities for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee culminated this afternoon at Buckingham Palace. As she went onto the balcony, she was greeted by the sight of more than a million well wishers lining the full length The Mall.

London Tonight's Political Correspondent Simon Harris reports on the celebrations to honour the Queen and her 60 years of service:
