Timelapse highlights as Tim Peake assists on spacewalk

UK astronaut Tim Peake has been helping his crew members Scott Kelly and Tim Kopra conduct a spacewalk outside the International Space Station (ISS) on Monday.

Mr Peake arrived at the ISS on Tuesday - the first Briton to be selected by the European Space Agency - and will spend six months aboard the space station.

The astronauts needed to fix a stalled "mobile transporter" - a rail car that moves a robotic arm along the space station - before the arrival of a cargo supply ship on Wednesday.
