Boris Johnson was left hanging today when he got stuck halfway down a zipwire at an event in Victoria Park.

The Mayor of London had to be pulled the rest of the way by teams on the ground at around 13:30 this afternoon.

Boris Johnson was heard shouting "Get me a rope, get me a ladder" after he was the first person to use the zipwire. He continued "I think the brakes got stuck".
