Armed police are on duty for the first time at Stonehenge for the Summer Solstice this morning. Bag checks and item restrictions are also in operation, with 25,000 people arriving from all over the country.

The annual Pagan festival celebrates the longest day of the year.

Security has been stepped up following the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London.
