Solar car shines on global trip

A solar-powered car has driven all the way around the globe without using a single drop of fuel, except when it had to make sea crossings on board ships.

Louis Palmer finished his journey at the UN climate change conference in Poznan in Poland, after 17 months on the move.

He says he hopes the car will raise awareness about the dangers to the environment.
