TWO people scaled The Shard in London this morning in a heart-stopping stunt.
The unnamed climbers made their way up the 1,017ft skyscraper – the tallest building in the UK – shortly after 6am.
Police and firefighters rushed to the scene near London Bridge Station in an attempt to coax them down.
The area was also cordoned off to rail passengers.
It is not yet known if the duo were arrested.
The then-20-year-old was later handed a six-month sentence in a young offender institution.
The Shard, designed by Italian architect Renzi Piano, sits on the South Bank of the River Thames and can be seen from 50 マイル離れた.
It houses offices, レストラン, a hotel and the highest public viewing platform in Britain on the 72nd floor.
At 1,107ft (310メートル), it is the tallest building in Britain and Western Europe, and the 96th tallest in the world.
