Jubilee beacons to be lit across Kent as celebrations continue
A STRING of flaming beacons will be lit across Kent tonight as the nation continues the celebrations for the Queen's diamond jubilee.
The county will be at the forefront of the beacon-lighting ceremonies after 10pm as more than 180 are expected to be lit - more than in any other area of the country.
South Foreland Lighthouse, which for generations warned ships of the dangers of the White Cliffs coastline and the notorious Goodwin Sands, will be lit for the first time in more than 20 years.
The light, which can be seen almost 40 miles away, will be one of around 4,000 beacons to be lit across the country following a party and concert at Buckingham Palace today.
