A British team has beaten off the challenge of 225 other entrants in an international competition to design London's first pedestrian bridge.

The Millennium Bridge will be London's first new river crossing for more than a century. It will link two of the capital's most significant public spaces and buildings - St Paul's Cathedral to the north and the area around the new Tate Gallery of Modern Art and the Globe Theatre to the south. The winning team is headed by Foster & Partners (architects), Sir Anthony Caro (sculptor), and Ove Arup & Partners (consulting engineers).
