Chester's iconic showboats were returned to the swollen River Dee yesterday, February 11, after being cleaned by the team at ChesterBoat, led by owner Brian Clarke.


The Lady Diana, The Jackie and The Mark Twain were all lifted back onto the water by a huge crane in an operation that lasted just over an hour and half.
