People across Surrey have continued to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with beacons lit across the county.

In Guildford a torchlight procession took place at 21:30 BST. It began at the Guildhall and finished at the Mount where a beacon was lit.

There were also dozens of other beacons lit across the county, including in Haslemere and Ewhurst.

A carriage drive also took place in Dorking as part of the celebrations.

'Posh or patriotic'

Nigel Dipple, chairman of Brockham Harness Club and organiser of the carriage drive, said the event echoed previous celebrations in the town.

"We compete quite often, but this was timed with the jubilee as there was a carriage procession to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee," he said.

"The dress code is posh or patriotic, so we've got people in their Sunday best, and other carriages decked out in bunting."
