Cambridge's famous punts are being taken off the River Cam for the first time ever

Cambridge's famous punts are being taken off the River Cam to be put into storage for the first time ever amid coronavirus fears.

Scudamore's Punting took the decision to close down indefinitely for the first time in the firm's history yesterday (Sat).

Punts are flat-bottomed boats that are propelled by pushing off the river bed with a 15ft long pole.
