Beacons across the North East were lit in commemoration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Crowds gathered to see one of the biggest lightings in the region, with Cawfields Quarry putting on a spectacular show to mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
The Cawfields Quarry lighting marked one in a series of beacons across Hadrian’s Wall.
Cawfields Quarry added their beacon to one in a number of torched spots across Hadrian’s Wall in the longest line of beacons in the country.
Festivities are set to continue, with hundreds of street parties expected to take place across the region as well as a Service of Thanksgiving at Durham Cathedral.
The Cawfields Quarry ceremony saw groups of people gather around beacon lighters, dressed in historic Roman garb lighting fire to the pyre in the river.
