Britain prepares for Jubilee celebrations

Rehearsals have started for one of the biggest royal parties the country's ever seen - the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Hundreds of soldiers rode on horseback through the deserted streets of London early this morning in a full run-through of the Jubilee procession.

Troops have been practising outside Buckingham Palace ahead of the real thing on Tuesday.

Four days of events marking Her Majesty's 60 years on the throne kick off tomorrow.
