What a party - Bristol street parties continue Jubilee celebrations
THOUSANDS of people held street parties as celebrations for the Queen's diamond jubilee continued in and around Bristol.
From The Downs to Downend, Brislington to Bradley Stoke, Keynsham to Southmead and Horfield to Oldland Common friends, neighbours and families all took part.
And although it was chilly at times the rain stayed away allowing everyone to remain outside and enjoy the fun.
More than 200 streets were closed as tables and chairs were set out and hundreds of plates of homemade cakes and sandwiches appeared.

Everywhere people were dressed in red, white and blue.
Tens of thousands of Union Flags flew in a blaze of patriotic pride.
Some adorned the fronts of houses, others were draped over chairs and tables. Dozens more were flown from the roofs of cars and taxis.
Streams of bunting criss-crossed almost every street where parties were held.
And at every party there were people from schoolchildren to pensioners in fancy dress.
Some wore crowns, some wore royal masks and some were wrapped in the Union Flag itself.
And everywhere there were smiles and laughter.
Yesterday was the third day in which people united in celebration, proud to be British and marking the Queen's 60 years on the throne.
