A man from a celebrated family of professional daredevils has completed a tightrope walk across Niagara Falls in a televised stunt.

Nik Wallenda braved wind and heavy spray to make the 1,800ft walk from the US to Canada on a 2-inch wire.

Thousands watched from Goat Island, where he began the crossing, suspended 150 feet above the falls.

It is the first such feat over Niagara Falls in over a century.
