It should be easier for Chinese tourists to get visas to come to London, according to some business groups.

Visitors from China spend three times more than the average foreign tourist.

But there are fears that many are travelling to other European countries instead, because it is too complicated for them to apply for British visas.

Violet Chun Yang says she wants people to know they are rich while Chenhao Ge says it is cheaper to buy goods here than in China.

Mark Henderson from London Luxury Quarter says the visa system needs to be made easier.
