'Cycle-in office' with ramp unveiled

A new "cycle-friendly" office is opening in London, and the BBC has been given exclusive access to its facilities.

The centrepiece of the Alphabeta Building - a refurbishment of the historic Triton Court in Finsbury Square, central London - is a steep ramp.

It takes employees to a basement with bike racks and relaxation facilities, including a basketball court.

It is London's first "cycle-in office", says project architect Dickon Hayward of the firm Studio RHE. The building is intended to connect Tech City with The City, attracting workers from both areas.

Video journalist Dougal Shaw went along to put it to the test.
