The city is gearing up for a bank holiday packed full of barbecues, dressing up, street parties and more – and this cracking piece of sand art is another jewel in the crown for Wearside’s tributes to the Queen.

John took the photograph on Thursday, June 2, as nationwide celebrations for the milestone began.

In Sunderland, you can keep your eyes peeled for some of the city’s most recognisable landmarks being lit in red, white and blue in Her Majesty’s honour.

Sunderland wishes the Queen a happy Platinum Jubilee.
