Drone footage showing 10,000 people gathered at Stonehenge

Thousands of people greeted the sun with cheers this morning as it rose over Stonehenge for summer solstice. Those who observed the spectacle at the neolithic Wiltshire monument encountered a chilly morning accompanied by clear skies as the sun glinted over the horizon at 4.52am. English Heritage’s Stonehenge director Kate Logan said it was ‘one of the highlights of the year’ at the site. Stonehenge is a monument built on the alignment of the midsummer sunrise and the midwinter sunset. On the summer solstice, the sun rises behind the Heel Stone, the ancient entrance to the Stone Circle. Rays of sunlight are then channelled into the centre of the monument.
