Thousands of revellers have enjoyed sunrise at Stonehenge for the annual summer solstice celebrations.
As drums beat and camera phones were pointed at the historic monument, the sun appeared over the horizon at 4.52am, bathing the Wiltshire countryside in a reddy glow.
More than 30,000 people are expected at Stonehenge today for the summer solstice.
Several thousand more - including hippies and pagans - are likely to visit the nearby Avebury stone circle to witness the sun rising at 4.52am on the longest day.
Whilst Stonehenge is believed to have been used as an important religious site by early Britons 4,000 years ago, pagan celebrations at the site only began in the 20th Century
Superintendent Gavin Williams of Wiltshire Police, who is leading the policing operation, warned of "robust" policing at the historic site.
"This year falls on Saturday so we are expecting in the region of 30,000 visitors throughout the night. The police will be there to ensure public safety and support the event," he said.
"There will be drugs dogs and amnesty bins at the entry points and we will deal robustly with any disorder or anti-social behaviour."
Researchers have used ground-breaking techniques to make new discoveries at Stonehenge and in the landscape that surrounds it.Read the full story ›
Plenty of sunshine for the longest day of the year - just a little cloud around but staying bright.
The cloud across Scotland and Northern Ireland will break up to leave a better afternoon.
In the sunshine it'll be 19-20C in the north, 25C in the south, so a little warmer than of late - but cooler by the coasts.
An estimated 37,000 people saw the sun rise at Stonehenge on the longest day in the calendar.
The Summer Solstice has a long tradition of attracting people to monuments such as Stonehenge, where people gather to witness the dawn.
25 people have been arrested at Stonehenge overnight, police said. Officers with Wiltshire Police said the arrests were largely for drugs-related offences.
