Model boats will do battle at Canoe Lake tomorrow.

There will be model sailing ships from the 18th century, Second World War vessels and models that the members of Portsmouth model boat display team have built. The display starts at 2pm in Southsea and goes on until 4.30pm.

Team secretary Alan Taylor said: ‘At 2pm we will put them on the water and have a sea battle.’

The display team meets every Sunday afternoon throughout the year.
