Kate Humble leads Thames clean-up

The biggest ever spot clean of the River Thames has taken place - led by the wildlife presenter Kate Humble.

The team involved targeted single-use items - metal cans, plastic bottles, food packaging.

It follows data from the charity Thames 21 which shows 80% of the rubbish found in the river is made up of these products.

Kate came in before the clean up to tell us more.
