Scouts parade to mark centenary
More than 4,000 cubs and scouts are gathering in Dorset to take part in one of the largest uniformed parades seen in the county.

Scouts from every group in Dorset will gather in Dorchester to mark St George's Day and the centenary of Scouting, which began in the county.

The parade starts in Charles Street in the afternoon and finishes with a service at Maumbury Rings amphitheatre.

In 1907 Robert Baden-Powell held the first scout camp on Brownsea Island.

This summer, the island is expected to be the focus of more celebrations marking the movement's centenary.
