Staffordshire chooses steam narrowboat for Jubilee Pageant

One of the world's only surviving steam powered narrowboats will be representing Staffordshire in the Diamond Jubilee Pageant flotilla.

The 71ft (22m) President will be making a 336-mile (540km) journey from a West Midlands museum to London.

The narrowboat will take about three weeks to make journey to the River Thames, arriving at the end of May.

The boat, which was part built in Staffordshire, is owned by the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley.
