Jubilee flotilla: Sailing will be 'very difficult'

A thousand vessels are preparing to sail down the Thames as the Diamond Jubilee celebrations take to the water.

The Queen, the only British monarch apart from Victoria to reign for 60 years, will travel on a Royal Barge, which will make its way along the seven mile route to Tower Bridge.

It is the largest flotilla to be held in London for more than 300 years.

The owners of one of the oldest barges taking part in the flotilla told the BBC's Robert Hall sailing down the river with so many other boat would be difficult.
