Norway PM on taxi stunt: 'I was nervous'

Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg has revealed he spent an afternoon working incognito as a taxi driver on the streets of Oslo.

He says he wanted the opportunity to hear from ordinary Norwegians.

The prime minister told the BBC World Service that he was nervous about working as a taxi driver, but that he enjoyed the experience and had some interesting conversations with passengers.

The footage of Mr Stoltenberg's afternoon was made in collaboration with an advertising agency and will be used as part of his re-election campaign.
