Outdoor escalator for poor Colombian shanty town

Residents of one of the poorest shanty towns in Colombia have been given a welcome Christmas present - an outdoor escalator system to help them get around.

It has been built into the hillside at the Comuna 13 district of Medellin and is part of a major development project for the city.
