Prince Andrew abseils down Shard

Queen Elizabeth's second son, Prince Andrew, has abseiled down the side of Europe's tallest building, The Shard, in London.

He stepped out on the end of a rope and descended almost 240m.

The BBC's Jeremy Cooke spoke to the prince shortly after his abseil, which he called a ''hugely satisfying experience''.
