VIDEO and PICTURES: Thousands pour on to the streets as South Devon celebrates Jubilee
THOUSANDS of people took to the streets of South Devon over the four-day holiday weekend to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
One of the biggest events took place in Hele, Torquay, where one of the busiest streets in Torbay was closed to traffic.
In place of its regular streams of traffic, Hele Road hosted a huge street party, with children sitting down to slap-up party food.
There was street entertainment, a talent competition and a host of stalls and sideshows.
