Pagans gather for summer solstice at Stonehenge

Thousands of people are preparing to flock to the ancient site of Stonehenge to celebrate the summer solstice once again, marking the longest day of the year and the first day of summer.

This year armed police are to be deployed to the Wiltshire site as part of an increase in security at major events and festivals in the wake of the terror attacks in London and Manchester, though Wiltshire police stressed there is no specific threat to the event.

English Heritage has advised all visitors they will only be able to take small bags onto the Monument Field and they will be searched. INDEPENDENT
