NY eyewitness who discovered car bomb speaks

New York street vendor Duane Jackson has spoken to the BBC about the moment he spotted the car bomb in Times Square.

The handbag seller alerted a passing mounted police officer when he first saw the suspicious car.

Mr Jackson said he did not think he was a hero, but was "just a guy in a familiar area and when I saw something unfamiliar I acted upon it".
