Last night the Mayor of Bromley, Councillor Hannah Gray, lit a beacon to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Bromley was part of over 2,000 beacon lighting events where the torches were simultaneously lit for Her Majesty.

The sold-out event at Crystal Palace Park saw 7,000 attendees, along with performances from a bugler, bagpiper and choir.

Many visitors enjoyed a picnic in the park before the beacon was lit at around 9.30pm.

The Jubilee celebrations in Bromley are now in full swing, with street parties erupting across the borough.

A record-breaking 305 street parties are being held in Bromley, with most arranged for Sunday.
