Garden bridge 'best Christmas present in the world'

What wonderful news.

This bridge will benefit everyone who knows and loves London, from the seasoned commuter to the first time visitor, reminding us that without the river Thames the city would not be here.

I am so very grateful that the Chancellor has been so generous; it's the best Christmas present in the world.

– Joanna Lumley, actress
