Commuters try out boat trips to London

Commuters from Kent have an alternative route to London this week. Thames Clippers are trialling the journey from Gravesend to the capital. The 220 capacity vessel takes 48 minutes to reach Canary Wharf and will be running all week. If successful, the route could well be permanent. Our reporter Jenna Verdicchio was on board for the maiden voyage.
