Worcestershire couple begin Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant trip

A Worcestershire couple have begun a 216-mile journey to London on their narrowboat in order to take part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

Andrew and Wendy Dyke, both Evesham Town and Wychavon District councillors, started their trip at Workman Gardens, Waterside in Evesham.

Their boat, Lord Toulouse, will be taken through 235 locks on its journey to the event on 3 June.

Organisers expect about 1,000 vessels to take part in the pageant.
