Boris Johnson has admitted he's "always tempted to do the zipwire" despite famously getting stuck on one in 2012.

The Mayor of London made the comments as he visited a community adventure area in Shadwell with businessman Richard Desmond.

Mr Desmonds' Health Lottery currently pledges £5million to good causes in London but today will see this double to £10 million by 2016.

This funding will go towards creating more green spaces in London as well as promoting healthy lifestyles.
