SIXTY rockets are to be set off in Ramsey to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip.

The fireworks will be sent into the sky on Friday as the town lights a commemorative beacon.

The hour-long tribute to the royal diamond wedding is part of a free display organised by the Ramsey Town Centre Partnership and supported by local businesses. It will feature a musical tribute by the Ramsey Choral Society.

Gina Randall, chairman of the partnership, said: "We wanted to mark the occasion in a way that would be exciting for everyone. Just seeing the beacon flare into life is a wonderful sight, but the 60 white rockets will really make this a really spectacular event."
