The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, was left hanging today when he got stuck halfway down a zip line at an event in Victoria Park. He had to be pulled the rest of the way by teams on the ground at around 13:30 this afternoon.

Johnson was heard shouting “Get me a rope, get me a ladder” after he was the first person to use the zip wire. He continued “I think the brakes got stuck.” All while waving tiny British flags. Watch video of the folly on itv.com.
