BBC reporter zip wires between London skyscrapers

The London Landmarks Skyscraper Challenge took place over the weekend, raising more than £800,000 for a range of charities.

The event saw some 850 participants abseiling down or zip wiring from the Leadenhall Building – often known as the Cheesegrater – to the Gherkin, high above the streets of the Square Mile.

BBC London’s Harry Low decided to give it a go.
