The Human Spider Arrested Again

If you haven't heard of him, The Human Spider is a 56 year old grandfather from the UK that is notorious for climbing very tall buildings without safety gear.

He has now been banned from climbing any buildings in the UK after illegally climbing one of London's tallets towers. 

He ascended the 202 metre tall Heron Tower, also known as the Salesforce Tower. 

Police closed the surrounding roads as soon as they were alerted to the drama.

He reached the top in around 45 minutes, to cheers from the crowd which had formed below, and immediately handed waiting police officers his passport and the number of his lawyer.

The man has previously climbed buildings including the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and the Empire State Building in New York. He pleaded guilty to causing a public nuisance during a hearing at City of London Magistrates' Court.
