The Queen has been given a new Diamond Jubilee train. The locomotive, painted silver and adorned with the union flag, was unveiled at Euston Station in London at the start of the Queen's awayday to Greater Manchester. It will be used for the Queen's jubilee tours in the UK in the months ahead.
Before the train set off it was given the all clear by Max, a Labrador retriever who works as an explosives search dog for the British Transport Police.
The Queen went to the new Media City development in Salford Quays, where her first stop was the Match of the Day studio. She chatted to former Liverpool players Mark Lawrenson and Didi Harmann.
