Royal rowbarge has Devon designer

A boat created by a Devon yacht designer will lead the vessels in the Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames later.

Ed Burnett designed the boat and will be one of its 18 oarsmen, alongside Olympians Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent, on Sunday.

The 94ft (29m) Royal rowbarge, the Gloriana, has been decorated with gold leaf and was officially named by the Queen and Prince Philip in April.
