A vast network of Beacons was lit across the Westcountry last night to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The Queen wlit the last of 4000 beacons across the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, as well as the Commonwealth and UK Overseas Territories.
At Torpoint in Cornwall, they were hoping to get into the Guiness Book of World Records. With concerts throughout the evening from local choirs, musicians and dance groups by the River Tamar, organisers were trying to set the record for the most bunting used.
Also in Cornwall, just off St. Mawes, a beacon was be lit on a barge in the sea and in Great Torrington in Devon a three storey beacon took three months to build.
In Exmouth, huge crowds gathered for an evening of entertainment before their beacon was lit.
After the beacon had been lit, the celebrations Exmouth continued into the night, with a firework display to compete with the one at Buckingham Palace.
