An estimated 300,000 people have taken to the streets of New York City to highlight concerns about a lack of international action to stop climate change.

The People's Climate March is part of a worldwide campaign to persuade global leaders to act decisively on the issue.

The march comes two days ahead of a heads of state summit at the United Nations which it's hoped will lead to a global agreement of climate change.

Daniel Dickinson reports from the streets of New York City.
