British European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake has returned safely to Earth alongside his crewmates Yuri Malenchenko and Tim Kopra after spending just over six months living and working on board the International Space Station.

The crew landed at 10:15 BST in Kazakhstan after undocking from the station just under three and a half hours earlier.

Tim spent most his time in space tending to many of the 250 or so experiments that are being carried out in the orbiting laboratory. He also carried out some demonstrations for educational activities and had enjoyed sharing his views of space with us.

There are many highlights of his mission to choose from, but Tim said that the spacewalk he carried out, to replace a failed power unit, would be etched in my memory forever.
