Diamond Jubilee: More than 60 beacons to be lit in Suffolk


 COMEDIAN Stephen Fry and Grimsby MP Austin Mitchell led a barrage of criticism of the BBC’s Diamond Jubilee coverage today, branding it “mind-numbingly tedious” and “a disgrace”.

The corporation drew stinging criticism during the Thames pageant with viewers attacking its “inane” commentary, camera angles and sound quality.

With broadcasters struggling to cope with technical problems caused by the bad weather - including the sound cutting out during musical performances - Fry chose to single out other aspects of the BBC’s coverage.

The host of BBC panel show QI’s comments sparked an outpouring of criticism on Twitter.

Mr Mitchell, Labour MP for Great Grimsby, summed up the coverage in similarly disparaging terms.

“One hated Thames Armada. No Navy left so hordes of tatty boats. Queen freezing, BBC 5Live and TV commentary pathetic. A disgrace,” he wrote.

Fry wrote: “Has the BBC ever presented a more mind-numbingly tedious programme in its history? “HRH the queen” said the first ignorant presenter. HRH?”.

His remarks appeared to resonate among his online followers, prompting a clarification of his comments in a further posting.

Paul Herbert said he was "gobsmacked" to have received the recognition for his work for homeless people.

"It's quite daunting to think that I'm going to help light the official beacon," he said.

Fireworks will follow the lighting of the beacon.
'Alternative Jubilee'

In Woodbridge, a beacon is being lit at Kingston playing field.

There will also be a fireworks display by the riverside and also an alternative Jubilee party at the Tea Hut.

Mark Moore from S Express will join Ben Osborne and other DJs for the Jubilee Curiosity Disco, which is also marking 175 years since Queen Victoria inherited the throne in 1837.

Philip Hope-Cobbold has invited people to his Glemham Hall estate, in Little Glemham, for the lighting of a beacon.

"The beacon is going to be about 80ft up on the roof of the house, looking out towards the A12", he said.

He said the pageant master of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Beacons, Bruno Peek, had given him strict instructions.

"My beacon lighting time, that I've had from Bruno Peek, is precisely 10.01pm - no earlier, no later," he said.

Beacons will be lit in other locations around the county including at Beck Row, Bacton, Hartest, Stoke by Nayland, Kettleburgh and Brandon.

In Pakefield, a candlelit service will take place at 22:00 BST on the cliff top near the Trowel and Hammer pub, before the lighting of the beacon at 22:15 BST.

A brass band will accompany the lighting of a beacon at the cliff top car park in Felixstowe.

The Queen will light the National Beacon at 22:30 BST in London following a music concert outside Buckingham Palace.
