Birmingham Cathedral Bells Toll in Tribute to Queen

The bells at St Philip’s Cathedral in Birmingham, England, tolled at midday on September 9 in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8 at age 96.

Footage filmed by Twitter user Jack Hindley shows the cathedral as the bells ring out.

Birmingham Cathedral said it had suspended its usual services in “order to be open for people of all faiths from across the city and region to mourn the death of Her Late Majesty the Queen.”

“The bells of the cathedral have been half-muffled as a sign of respect, and short prayer will be said on the hour, every hour. Flags at the site are also currently flying at half-mast,” cathedral staff added. Credit: Jack Hindley via Storyful
