Women's Tour a showcase – Trott

Olympic gold medallists Laura Trott and Dani King, and road race silver medallist Lizzie Armitstead chat to BBC Breakfast's Nick Hope about the Women's Tour of Britain.

Trott, who won two track cycling gold medals at London 2012, says it is "amazing" that Britain is hosting the five-day event which began on Wednesday, and that it can "showcase how good women's cycling's actually become".

Armitstead says equal prize money for women is "a big step forward".
