Tim Peake: First UK astronaut to conduct spacewalk ends early

Major Tim Peake has become the first astronaut representing Britain to conduct a space walk. But the mission was brought to an abrupt end when his US colleague Colonel Tim Kopra reported water in his helmet.

Despite the water being a small amount, the flight director took the precaution of ending the event early.

David Shukman reports.
