A taste of China came to the Royal Docks this weekend with the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival.

Four cups were up for grabs as crews took to the water at the London Regatta Centre.

Visitors could also sample Chinese food and enjoy entertainment in the form of musicians, dancers and comedians.

Martial arts displays and lion dancers helped to attract up to 10,000 fans to the 19th year of the festival.
