Brits up and down the country toast the Queen as they enjoy boozy Jubilee celebrations in 22C scorcher

JOYFUL Brits are raising a glass to the Queen today as she celebrates 70 years on the throne.

Revellers up and down the country are coming together to toast Britain's longest reigning monarch on day one of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations – as temperatures hit a delightful 22C.

Jubilant supporters lined The Mall in London from the early hours of this morning to secure a front-row spot for Trooping the Colour.

Many were snapped clinking glasses of prosecco at the crack of dawn as they waited for the royals to arrive.

Elsewhere, partygoers were pictured out in force in Leeds – some in full regal get-up.

Groups of friends draped in England flags and dressed as Beefeaters filed into pubs and bars across the city.

Others went for a less imperial approach in lifeguard, cheerleader and even Shrek costumes.

But overall, boozy punters painted their towns red, white and blue.

Today, Trooping the Colour marked the start of four days of celebrations in honour of the Queen's 70-year reign.

Over 1,500 soldiers and officers, as well as 250 Household Division horses, put on an epic display near Buckingham Palace.

The mercury climbed to a balmy 22C in south-eastern England, with temperatures in the high teens and mid-20s elsewhere.

And the warm weather will continue into Friday when Brits will bask in 26C heat.
