"Pocket parks" to be created in London

Work's begun today on adding to the capital's much-loved green spaces.

It's a programme designed to create dozens of so-called "pocket parks".

These are slivers of land - currently un-loved - which can be transformed, with a touch of TLC and a dollop of money from City Hall.

Martin Stew reports.
