007 boat show causes stir
James Bond Boat
Boats and other props will be on show
A collection of boats from the James Bond films is on show at a motor museum in Hampshire.

The James Bond Boat Exhibition was officially launched at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, at 1200 GMT.

Exhibits include the Q "road boat" from The World is Not Enough, the "bath-o-sub" from Diamonds Are Forever and the Lotus "submarine car" from The Spy Who Loved Me.

The exhibits have been loaned to the museum by the Ian Fleming Foundation.

James Bond
The next Bond is partly filmed in England
The exhibition is also one of the many events to mark the 50th anniversary of the National Motor Museum.

Filming has started on the next Bond movie which is as yet unnamed with some English locations getting a starring role.

Holywell Bay beach, near Newquay, is to be transformed into a North Korean battlefield for the film's opening sequence.

And film-makers Eon Productions have already said they will be using the massive greenhouses of the Eden Project complex, near St Austell, for some scenes.
