Crowds building ahead of Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert

Ticket-holders for a star-studded Diamond Jubilee concert for the Queen have enjoyed specially-created picnics in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.

Acts including Sir Paul McCartney will play at the concert which will be watched by 12,000 people.

Those without tickets have gathered on The Mall nearby where, despite room becoming tight, the atmosphere remained persistently polite and good-natured.

Lorna Gordon reports from the Mall.
