Britain has begun four days of festivities for Queen Elizabeth II’s diamond jubilee, with massive celebrations marking the exact anniversary of the queen’s coronation.

But not everyone in the country is celebrating the event.

West Indians who moved to the country when Elizabeth started her reign 60 years ago say she should apologise for British colonialism and slavery that had once caused much suffering in their native countries.

The immigrants say they continue to face much racism in the UK.
