London’s Tower Bridge has been closed by City of London Police today while officers ‘deal with a person who has climbed the structure’, the force have said.
A spokesman said shortly after 11.30am: ‘Tower Bridge is currently closed while we deal with a person who has climbed the structure.’
In August, the bridge was shut for over 24 hours due to a “mechanical fault’ when it failed to close after allowing a ship to pass along the River Thames.
Engineers rushed to fix the bridge with drivers urged to avoid the area and queues of motorists and pedestrians were left waiting from both directions.
