Jubilee river pageant claims

It's claimed many large firms in the City of London are refusing to help fund the river pageant on the Thames in honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The Queen insists none of the £10.5m cost should come from public money.

But former Government minister Lord Salisbury says while many small businesses and foreign companies have made donations - several big firms have refused.
