The Colombian city of Medellin has opened a giant outdoor escalator for residents of one of its poorest areas. The escalator is divided into six sections and ascends nearly 384m (1,260ft) in the steep hillside district of Comuna 13.

Residents used to climb hundreds of steps to get home from the city centre, but the journey now takes just 6 minutes.
