Report: Annual dragon boat races create a splash on the Thames

Hundreds of people gathered along the banks of the River Thames in Reading today to watch the annual Dragon Boat Race.

The charity event which is organised by the Lions Club sees teams from the local community go head to head - or rather paddle to paddle - in a series of heats to be crowned the champions.

Mel Bloor reports.

Mel spoke to Andrew Young from Reading Lions Club, Claire Rhodes from the Daisy's Dream charity, Jason McMahon from Launchpad and John Galt from the Dragon Boat Association.
