ICE skating returns to London's Canary Wharf next month for the fifth year running.

An open air rink is being laid out in the finance district at Canada Square Park and opens to the public seven days a week from November 14 to February 21, set against one of London's most breathtaking backdrops beneath the world-famous Canary Wharf towers.

Some 4,000 East End school children get an eight-week skating lesson programme run jointly by Tower Hamlets council and the School Sports Partnership.

The rink has been set up with sponsorship from Thomson Reuters global news and data agency nearby.
