Huge crowds flock to Stonehenge for summer solstice celebrations
The Metro says THOUSANDS have gathered for this year’s summer solstice, with a huge celebration held at Stonehenge.
The event, which marks the longest day of the year, has been disrupted for three years due to the pandemic.
Mist rolled through the ancient stone circle this morning and slightly shielded the sun as it rose, but the hazy conditions didn’t dampen the crowd’s spirits.
Traditional pagan ceremonies were held and people played music to help pass the time until sunrise.
As groups huddled on the grass near the stones, many more were watching the proceedings online through a livestream.
