In the pink

Cancer Research UK hijacked the launch of a new pedestrian bridge to promote October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.The Hungerford bridge, which is the second of two pedestrian bridges to be completed by Westminster City Council, was taken over by women and renamed the "Bridge of Bras".

Among the women to recreate the bridge by linking arms were celebrities including model Emma B, TV presenter Lisa Riley, new Bond girl Catherine McQueen, BBC newsreader Natasha Kaplinksky and TV presenter Sarah Greene. The 107 women who form the human bridge symbolise the daunting number of people diagnosed with breast cancer daily in the UK.
