Prince Andrew abseils down Shard

3 September 2012 Last updated at 09:51 BST

Queen Elizabeth's second son, Prince Andrew, has abseiled down the side of Europe's tallest building, The Shard, in London.

He stepped out on the end of a rope and descended almost 240m.

The BBC's Jeremy Cooke spoke to the prince shortly after his abseil, which he called a ''hugely satisfying experience''.
