Thames cable car service opens

A new cable car service which will carry passengers across the Thames has opened to the public.

The £60m project, called the Emirates Air Line, links the O2 Arena in Greenwich with the ExCel exhibition centre at the Royal Docks in east London.

The service can carry up to 2,500 people an hour, as Richard Westcott reports.
