Audio slideshow: London's year in review

London's 2010 would begin as it ended, with snow and freezing temperatures bringing severe disruption to the capital's transport network.

In between there was a general election, Tube strikes, student protests and a papal visit. It was also a big year for cyclists and London's skyline continues to evolve.

Remind yourself of some of the year's biggest stories and listen to how they were reported at the time by BBC London's TV and radio journalists.
