Queen's Platinum Jubilee: Pubs could stay open into the early hours to celebrate the occasion


Pubs, bars and clubs could remain open into the early hours to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee over a bank holiday weekend next year.

Venues in England and Wales would be able to serve customers for an extra two hours to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the monarch's reign under the government's draft order.

Home Secretary Priti Patel wants to extend licensing hours from 11pm to 1am from Thursday 2 June to Saturday 4 June over the extended bank holiday weekend.
