PM: I'm not embarrassed to support more big London projects

Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlines his belief that the Elizabeth line, London Underground's newest addition to its network, will be a "transformative investment" for the whole country, saying he has "absolutely no embarrassment" supporting major projects in London.
