Questions are being asked after a bus load of people from the West Country were stranded in the middle of the night in central London.
They'd travelled to the capital to work as stewards on the day of the Jubilee Pageant on The Thames.
The company that was supposed to be looking after them says the mix-up happened after their coach turned up in London 2 hours early. It has since apologised.
A West MP has called on the government to investigate claims that unpaid stewards from Bristol were told to sleep rough before working long shifts at the Jubilee celebrations.
Volunteers on the government's Work Programme were taken to London to help control crowds at Sunday's pageant on the Thames. But some have complained that they were told to sleep under a bridge before the 16-hour stint.
A security company has apologised.
Bristol West MP Stephen Williams has written to the work and pensions secretary to complain.
Robert Murphy reflects on four days of celebration that won't be repeated for generations - the Diamond Jubilee has been marked with everything from street parties to beacons and big concerts. Almost wherever you looked, the West played its part in the biggest party seen for years.
Ken Goodwin has been in Gloucester where celebrations carry on for the last day of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The rain may be here to stay, but it's not putting people off making the best of the bank holiday.
One of the highlights of the last few days has been the beacons which were lit across the country.
The Queen lit the national beacon last night at a special ceremony in London - one of 4,000 lit across the country.
Many of those were here in the West and Daisy Gray was on the Downs in Bristol to see the bonfire being lit.
Schoolchildren across the region have been busy learning about the monarchy from those who witnessed the Coronation first hand.
Pupils in Somerset were joined in class and in song by some of those who've lived throguh the Queen's 60-year reign.
