This weekend a one thousand strong flotilla will take to the River Thames to take part in the Diamond Jubilee Pageant. The procession will be the largest on the river in three hundered years.
At the heart will be the Jubilee barge Gloriana and providing escort will be the Sea Cadets, including some from our region, who have been given a rather special honour.
Sixty beacons were lit along Hadrian's Wall last night to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
