Low carbon plans announced for Greenwich Power Station

One of the oldest operational power stations in the world is set to have a new lease of life generating low carbon power for the Tube network.

Plans to revamp the 1906 Greenwich Power Station, in south-east London, have been announced by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.

The transformed power station will also provide heat for local homes and buildings.

Six new gas engines will be installed in the building's old turbine hall.

BBC London's Karl Mercer also spoke to Councillor Denise Hyland, Leader of Royal Borough of Greenwich.
