In his latest moment of Mr Beanery, Mayor of London Boris Johnson has managed to get stuck on a zip line in a London park.

Tipped to be the next leader of the Conservative Party and possible Prime Minister, Boris was zipping into the BT London Live event, which shows the Olympics on huge screens in the North London park.

Alas, he failed to reach the ground docking station and was heard to be calling: "someone get me a rope. Someone get me a ladder!"
