FLAMES will light up the skies as beacons are lit to see in the celebrations.

All Saints Church, in Catherington, Southsea Castle, Portsdown Hill and Stansted House are some of thousands of places where beacons will be lit on Monday.

The beacons will be lit starting from 10pm on Monday. To finish the order, the Queen will light the national beacon in London at the end of the Diamond Jubilee concert at around 10.30pm.

The last time the country joined to light beacons was for the weekend of Trafalgar celebrations. To find out where the beacons are being lit visit diamondjubileebeacons.co.uk
