Icelandic artist celebrates Queen's Diamond Jubilee

A new stained-glass window commissioned to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee has been installed in Southwark Cathedral.

The window is said to depict "jewels descending from heaven".

It was made in Iceland by artist Leifur Breidfjord who won a competition to get the commission.

A service of dedication for the new window will take place on the day of the Diamond Jubilee Thames Pageant on 3 June.
