The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are continuing the Diamond Jubilee tour with visits to Warrington, Liverpool and Chester later.

The day will include a trip on an amphibious sightseeing tour around the Albert Dock on a "yellow duckmarine".

The royal couple will also visit Chester Zoo, where they will unveil a plaque at the entrance and tour the rhino paddock and elephant area.

They will then visit Orford Jubilee Park in Warrington.

They will be taken on a drive around the park before touring the Orford Park building, where the Queen will unveil a sculpture and the prince will bury a time capsule.

The Queen and Prince Philip will travel along Canada Boulevard and Mann Island in Liverpool before returning to the Merseyside Maritime Museum for lunch.

The Queen last visited the city in December where she unveiled a plaque to commemorate the opening of the new Museum of Liverpool.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool Frank Prendergast said it was "a real honour and pleasure" to be part of the visit.

"This is a really great opportunity for the people of the city to come out and pay tribute to Her Majesty for six decades of sterling service representing the UK at home and abroad," he said.

"I really hope that young and old find some time in their day to come out to give them a really warm welcome to our city."
