Services on a cable car spanning the River Thames in east London were stopped due to bad weather conditions.

Transport for London (TfL) said it had to halt services on the Emirates Air Line at 15:40 BST for 20 minutes.

A spokeswoman said following a storm warning all passengers were asked to wait until the weather improved.

The cable car, which can carry up to 2,500 people an hour, links two Olympic venues - the O2 Arena in Greenwich and the ExCel exhibition centre.
