London's Millennium Bridge - which made headlines when it opened in 2000 because it was wobbly - now features some intriguing noises and music, from voices to nursery rhymes to church bells.

Reporter Beth McLeod spoke to its creator Martyn Ware, a pioneer of electronic music who founded Human League and Heaven 17.
