Listeners to travel news bulletins on LBC or BBC Radio London will be used to hearing about delays involving Tower Bridge or the Woolwich Ferry.
But on Saturday afternoon they might have heard a travel report with a difference – warning that Tower Bridge was being raised to allow the Woolwich Ferry to pass through.
The James Newman – one of the three Woolwich Ferry vessels – visited the Upper Pool of London on Saturday on the ferry's annual river trip for young people from the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
The car deck was turned into a dance floor, and a burger van and ice cream van were parked up on board.
When the vessel reached London Bridge the ferry showed off the capabilities of its Voith Schneider propeller by spinning around whilst the passengers danced to 'Is this the way to Amarillo?'.
