Thames Duck Tours put on hold

Thirty people were rescued when a tourist boat on London's River Thames caught fire close to the Houses of Parliament.

Many people jumped into the river from the London Duck Tours craft - which can travel on both land and water.

All the passengers and crew were rescued by the emergency services and a passing tourist boat.

Paramedics said that those rescued were mainly "wet and cold" but some people had breathed in smoke.
