Ships arrive for Gloucester Tall Ships Festival

A flotilla of tall ships has arrived at Gloucester Docks for the city's bank holiday weekend festival.

The vessels include the Phoenix and the Matthew - a replica of John Cabot's ship which charted North America in 1497.

Tens of thousands of people are expected at the event over the next three days.
