Today at 5.30pm BST, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning monarch in 1,000 years of British history. She has been on the throne for 63 years and 216 days, since February 6 1952, when her father, George VI, died in his sleep.
The Queen has therefore overtaken her grea-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, who reigned for 23,226 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes.

This is at the Olympic Park, but there’s one at Brent Cross shopping centre,
and one at the Royal Docks, directly beneath the Emirates Cable Car!
So, you are in London, on a HOT August day and you’re dreaming of a swim? Easy! Go to the beach.
