Seven arrested at a 'peaceful' Stonehenge solstice

Police say summer solstice celebrations at Stonehenge were peaceful. Around 13,000 people gathered at the ancient monument to watch the sunrise with only seven arrests.

Armed police were in attendance following the recent terror attacks but officers also carried out their usual role of overseeing traffic and keeping the local community safe.

This year, following recent terror attacks in London and Manchester, we had an armed presence at Stonehenge along with high visibility patrols.
