Battle plan will undergo review
Prix D'Honneur was won by St Clements
Jersey's Battle of Flowers' organisers have admitted there were problems with the parade this year.

Some spectators complained the procession was slow to start with long delays between some of the floats.

Battle chairman Bob Pallot says there were some delays with the smaller floats, but things speeded up once the larger floats began leaving Milbrook.

He said lessons had been learned, but defended the decision to allow the parade to only pass once.

He also claimed problems with its flow would be rectified for Friday night's Moonlight Parade.

The exhibits are being decked out in lights to compete for the award for the best illuminations.

But in a break with tradition, there will not be a fireworks display to mark the end of the Battle.

Prix D'Honneur was won by St Clements with their float Siam and Grouville won the Prix D'Excellence.
