BBC News - Stonehenge revellers mark summer solstice

BBC News - Stonehenge revellers mark summer solstice: "Thousands of people have gathered at Stonehenge to celebrate the summer solstice despite overcast skies.

Cloud cover meant pagans and druids were unable to witness the sunrise on the longest day of the year.

Wiltshire Police said despite the rain it had been a "positive experience" for most revellers.

Officers made 37 arrests for theft, drugs or alcohol-related offences and more than 100 people received cautions for cannabis use or possession.

A further three people were arrested at the stone circles at Avebury, which is about 22 miles (37km) away from Stonehenge"
