Where to see the Queen's 90th birthday beacons

Hundreds of beacons will be lit across the South to celebrate the Queen turning 90.

There is a long tradition of lighting beacons to celebrate royal jubilees, weddings, coronations and special birthdays. They can be found from villages to cities, on mountains and beside castles.

The Queen will light the first beacon at Windsor Castle tonight at around 7pm. This will spark a chain of more than 1,000 beacons being lit across the country.
