Live: Tim Peake news briefing from International Space Station

UK astronaut Tim Peake is giving a news briefing from space, after becoming the first Briton to serve on the International Space Station.

The former army pilot and his two Soyuz crewmates arrived at the space platform on Tuesday, following a six-hour journey after launch from Kazakhstan.

This is the first opportunity to find out how the first UK government-sponsored astronaut is coping in micro-gravity.
