Diamond Jubilee Pageant bells ring out in rehearsal

The first Diamond Jubilee river rehearsal of the bell ringers on the Belfry barge has taken place on the Thames. The barge will lead the Queen's Jubilee flotilla and carries eight church bells which will peel out across London as the procession makes its way up the Thames.

Pushed along by a tug at about 6mph, the vessel will mark the start of the Pageant, leading the flotilla as it makes its way from Battersea Bridge to Tower Bridge.
