Bridlington land train heading to London

The Bridlington land train is swapping the Yorkshire coast for London today.

It's one of 144 floats taking part in a the Lord Mayor's Show, which dates back over 800 years. 

More than half a million people are expecting to line London's streets to watch. 

Sir Gary Verity, from Welcome to Yorkshire, says: "It’s always a great moment when we unveil our float for the Lord Mayor’s Show as every year we showcase Yorkshire with something new and exciting.

"This year has been a fantastic one for Yorkshire’s coast which featured in our hugely successful garden at Chelsea Flower Show in May. The Sea Breeze land train is such a popular event for visitors to Bridlington so it was important to make it an integral part of our float this year."
