Diamond Jubilee: Royal Rowbarge will be lowered onto Thames

The Royal Rowbarge, which has been built for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, is to be lowered onto the River Thames in London on Thursday.

The Gloriana, which is being decorated with gold leaf, will lead the Jubilee River Pageant in June.

Lord Sterling, from the Royal Rowbarge Project, told the BBC's Fiona Trott how the vessel will be completed over the coming days.
