Rowers criticise Thames Putney pier extension plans

Plans to extend a pier in Putney have been criticised by rowers who use that part of the Thames.

The rowing community, which includes some Olympic gold medallists, said the development could be dangerous.

BBC London's Gareth Furby spoke to Dulwich College Boat Club's Simon Croucher, Putney Pier owner Chris Livett, Ian Henderson, and Wandsworth Conservative Council's Rosemary Torrington.
