Girl begs London Mayor not to close local fire station

A girl has begged London's Mayor not to close her local fire station. Nine-year-old Juliette told Boris Johnson she was worried out the safety of her estate in south London after he gave the go-ahead to close 10 fire stations.

Speaking during a radio phone-in the mayor admitted the girl's plea was "heartbreaking", but the cuts still made sense.
