Bear Grylls in zip wire flight for Olympic flame


The Olympic flame has been flown by zip wire from the top of the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle.

Chief Scout Bear Grylls completed the dare-devil slide at high speed without the flame going out.

He flew 400 metres from the Tyne Bridge to the Quayside below, watched by thousands of people along the banks of the River Tyne.
