30k Celebrate Solstice at Stonehenge

Some 30,000 people were at Stonehenge over the weekend to welcome the summer solstice.

Many bearing religious leanings were accompanied by those who simply wanted to enjoy the festivities. The turnout was the highest in five years. It was rainy and overcast (but it's England), but the crowd stayed around for the sunrise. All-told, the event was a peaceful one, with only 17 arrests for various public order offenses.
