Company receives beacons boost

A Birmingham manufacturing company has received a boost after it was asked to design a special beacon for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

On 4 June people around the world will light a network of beacons for the event.

As part of the celebrations religious buildings are being encouraged to light a church tower beacon.

Andrew Williams, managing director of Bullfinch Gas Equipment Ltd, based in Tyseley, said it was a "great honour" to make the tower beacons for the celebrations.
