OLYMPICS CABLE CAR LIFTS OFF IN EAST LONDON

LONDON’S first cable car service opened its doors to the public yesterday, a spectacular ride high across the River Thames near the Olympic Park which will help visitors to the Games avoid any jams on the ground. Called the Emirates Air Line, it soars almost 300ft above the river, offering 360-degree views of the east of the capital including the O2 Arena and Canary Wharf.
