Tim Peake spacewalk: Highlights of repair task

Tim Peake has been carrying out the first ever spacewalk by an "official" British astronaut.

Major Peake stepped outside the International Space Station's Quest airlock just after 13:00 GMT, along with fellow astronaut Tim Kopra.

This video shows highlights of their first task to repair a power unit known as a Sequential Shunt Unit (SSU) - the spacewalk was later called off early after Colonel Kopra reported a water bubble in his helmet.

Video produced by Sara Barman.
