Bear Grylls Completes Olympic Torch Zip Wire

15 June 2012, 19:30

Adventurer Bear Grylls has completed his stunt of zip wiring across the River Tyne with the Olympic Torch.

The spectacle happened as thousands of people looked on from the Quayside.

Bear was strapped to the zip wire line that stretched from the Tyne Bridge down to HMS Calliope on the Gateshead side of the Quayside.

When his feet were firmly back on the ground he passed the flame on to 18 year old Jane Wood from Gateshead. 

He then had a chance to have a chat with Capital FM's Anna Harding
