Scores camp out for Diamond Jubilee Thames pageant


Dozens of people have camped overnight in central London to secure a good spot for Sunday's Diamond Jubilee Thames pageant.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to line the banks of the river to watch the Queen cruise past on a royal barge escorted by a 1,000-strong flotilla.

The event to mark 60 years of her reign promises to be the most spectacular nautical event in London for 350 years.

Some of those who chose to camp out overnight explain why they decided to brave the rain.
