Cash machine for the Brixton pound opens in south London

A local currency cash machine - believed to be the world's first - has opened in Brixton.

It lets people withdraw bank notes which can only be spent at local businesses.

The aim is to boost the economy in that area of south London. But will it work?

BBC London's Emilia Papadopoulos spoke to the general manager of the Brixton Pound, Tom Shakhli.
