The broadcaster and star of Strictly Come Dancing John Sergeant made a fleeting visit last week to Braunston Marina.

He set off from the marina to film the fifth episode of a new eight-part series on British canal journeys. Before departing he was given a tour of the marina’s historic working dry docks, boat-building shed and rope shop by owner Tim Coghlan. The opening shots of the film, to be screened on ITV in 2015, will include the marina.
