HM The Queen Elizabeth II marks 70 years on the throne on Sunday.

The longest reigning British monarch of all time succeeded to the Throne on February 6, 1952, at the age of just 25 years, on the death of her father, King George VI.

She was crowned on June 2, 1953 at Westminster Abbey.

The Queen will mark her Platinum Jubilee with events and initiatives throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday 5.

Here we look back at some of the times The Queen visited our region.
