Details of how people in Jersey will be celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee have been unveiled.

They include a special church service, a cavalcade of classic vehicles, a concert and a food festival.

Jersey will also light one of 2,012 jubilee beacons to be lit across the UK and Crown Dependencies, followed by a firework display at Elizabeth Castle.

David Filipponi, the chief officer of the Bailiff's Chambers, told BBC Radio Jersey's Simon Jupp why it is important to celebrate the jubilee in the island.
