PLA WARNING - AND ADVICE - TO BOATERS
The Port of London Authority issued a message to boaters – stay off the Thames on Sunday unless you are part of the Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
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.
Moorings at Barn Elms Reach ready for the flotilla.
Final details of the Pageant were released by organisers at a briefing at the Guildhall in the City of London where the event was described “the world’s biggest outdoor party” and “the most spectacular river pageant ever seen”.
