Preparing for the Queen's Coronation

Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation took place in London 60 years ago.

For Westminster Abbey it meant six months of preparation including construction work to enable 8,000 guests to attend the service.

BBC London's Sarah Harris spoke to Victoria Ribbans from Westminster Abbey, artist Ralph Heimans and Dorothy Chamberlain about the event.
