Although the authorities have instructed not to travel due to the coronavirus pandemic, hundreds of people still came to Stonehenge to celebrate the summer solstice.
The British Heritage Organization, which is responsible for managing the historical sites in England, did not want to come, but wanted to provide a live broadcast for tourists on the longest day of the year. However, for safety reasons, the broadcast was cancelled at 4:52 in the morning.
According to the BBC, people still reached the Neolithic monument, and the video showed that they had to jump over the fence to do so.
Therefore, the virtual visitors watched the previously recorded winter solstice video, and the live video returned at 5 pm.
The BBC wrote that British Heritage did not explain why people arriving at Stonehenge would stop the live broadcast of dawn.
The organization had previously prepared for the arrival of tourists, but then the government postponed the relaxation of restrictions until July.
Before the Stonehenge pandemic, as many as 30,000 people will usher in the dawn of the winter solstice.
From the beginning, this ancient object was related to the summer and winter solstices in the northern hemisphere.
Gathering at this location as part of the summer solstice is a centuries-old tradition, and it was also postponed last year due to the pandemic.
Stonehenge has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1986, and is considered by many to be the place of worship for the sun god, because the circular opening faces the summer sunrise.
