Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee was celebrated in style, with parties aplenty across Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield and Potters Bar to honour Her Majesty's 70 years on the throne.

More than 50 street parties took place across the area as friends and family gathered for the historic occasion, while others ventured to London for official celebrations outside Buckingham Palace.
