Among those in attendance were the new Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of Southwark Cllr Charles Cherrill and the Lord Mayor of London, as well as the Bishops of London and Southwark and the Dean of Southwark Cathedral, the Very Rev Colin Slee. A flotilla of small boats passed under the bridge to mark the occasion. See <http://www.London-SE1.co.uk/news/0500/bridge.html> for some photos.
