HAPPY BIRTHDAY . . . a large crowd gathered at a number of beacons and bonfires in south west Scotland on Thursday night to celebrate The Queen's 90th birthday.

They were part of a network across the UK and Commonwealth which were lit after the first beacon was lit in front of Her Majesty at Windsor Castle.

It was lit by well-known local residents Flora Little and Tom Brown and among those attending was the Scotland Secretary, local MP David Mundell
