SECURITY guards are patrolling Stonehenge today as druids prepare to celebrate the summer solstice with a ‘virtual sunrise’.

Thousands of druids, hippies and party goers who would usually flock to the monument on Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, to mark the longest day of the year, have been asked to do so from home instead.

The sunrise and sunset will instead be live-streamed online for the first time – although some senior druids have insisted they will still make their way to the site today.

Senior druid King Arthur Pendragon told The Guardian it was his “right” to “be as close as is legally possible” to Stonehenge to watch the solstice and promised to keep a social distance from anyone he encountered.
