English Heritage kept the monument closed for Summer Solstice this year, with the backing of Wiltshire Police and Wiltshire Council - but live streamed the sunrise this morning (Sunday 21st June) instead.

They set up to cameras to make sure those who wanted to celebrate the occasion could still do so, but safely from their own homes.

English Heritage has been streaming the event for a few years now, but they've added extra cameras and enhanced angles this time, as it's the only way we've been able to see in the sunrise.

Nichola Tasker is the Director of Stonehenge for English Heritage and explains why they were so keen to put that in place: 

"It does have a personal resonance for people and we understand that, so we're really hoping that by having a live stream, they're still able to get that connection to the site at this time.
