Tennis fans camp out for Wimbledon tickets

Tennis fans have been camping out ahead of the first day of the All England championships, which starts on Monday.

A "tent city" began appearing in Wimbledon park from early Sunday morning, with approximately 600 people hoping to secure one of the 500 Centre Court tickets that will be on offer.

To avoid queue-jumping each camper has been issued with a numbered ticket from the organisers that will guarantee them a corresponding place in the queue.
