HISTORIC SHIPS LODGE STRONG PROTEST
OVER BBC COVERAGE
Martyn Heighton, Director of National Historic Ships UK, has protested over the BBC coverage of the pageant. The organisation provided detailed background for the broadcast but he says "We might just as well not have bothered. I saw no evidence of my staff’s hard work in the meanderings of the commentators on the day."

It comes after fears that some jet skiers and small motor boat owners are  planning to take to the water and attempt to accompany the flotilla down-river.
