Duck Tours Fire

This afternoon an amphibious Duck Tours craft on the River Thames caught fire near the Houses of Parliament. Most of the tourists on board, including a handful of young children, jumped into the river to escape the flames and smoke. Emergency services rescued all 28 passengers and two crew members. Three people have been taken to hospital "as a precaution". Last month Liverpool revoked the operating licence of such amphibious vehicles after two sank in Liverpool's Albert Dock (CLICK).
