There's a free cuppa for commuters at Blackfriars this morning as Britain's biggest cup of tea is brewed.
It's to mark the opening of the world's largest solar powered bridge, producing enough energy to make 8,000 cups of tea.
The 4,400 photovoltaic panels which cover the roof of the station, the first to span the Thames, make it the world's largest solar powered bridge and London's longest array.
It provides up to half the station's energy, reducing its CO2 emissions by an estimated 511 tonnes per year

A Muslim woman will be allowed to stand trial while wearing a full-face veil but must remove it while giving evidence, a judge has ruled.
Lawyers for the woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, had argued that it would breach her human rights and be counter to Britain's tolerance of Islamic dress to remove her niqab against her wishes.
