A New Zealand lawyer working in London has thanked bystanders who came together to free her from under a London cab.

Claire Miller, 42, was dragged beneath the taxi as she returned to her office near Bank station after going out for lunch last Monday.

A video filmed by an office worker in a building above shows about 30 people working together to roll the cab off her.

A woman at the scene who called others to join her to help told the Evening Standard "all these bankers and city workers then just started dropping their briefcases and running over".

Ms Miller, who was discharged from hospital after being treated for minor injuries, told the newspaper "it just proved that Londoners are some of the greatest people on Earth, I'm just so grateful for their help".
