Thousands of people gathered at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise and celebrate Summer Solstice on the longest day of the year.

Summer solstice takes place when one of the earth's poles has its maximum tilt towards the sun, and the sun reaches its highest position in the sky.

It happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere.
