At the scene: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit the Isles of Scilly

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend today touring the Isles of Scilly as their visit to the West Country continues.

Our reporter Seth Conway is there and explains why this is likely to be such a special visit:

William and Kate will tour the three islands of St Mary's, Tresco and St Martin's to learn more about their industries, particularly the flower trade, and hear from local people about Scillonian life and culture.

The Isles of Scilly are part of the Duchy of Cornwall.
