Royal barge to enter the Thames

The royal barge built for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee will be lowered on to the Thames on Thursday.

The Gloriana which cost around £500,000 will lead the Jubilee river pageant in June.

Several roads had to be closed overnight to transport the 94ft vessel from a secret location.

Sophie Hutchinson reports.
