Space shuttle Endeavour begins final journey in LA

13 October 2012 Last updated at 18:37 BST

The space shuttle Endeavour, which retired from service last year, has been making its very last journey - through the streets of Los Angeles at 2mph (3kph).

Trees have been cut down, power lines moved and traffic signals taken out to allow the shuttle to pass through the streets on its way to the California Space Centre.

Alistair Leithead reports from Los Angeles.
