The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, has been evacuated and closed ‘until further notice’ after a man was seen climbing up the outside of the tower.
The man began his ascent at the second level at around 2.15pm local time.
A number of tourists inside the tower were told to stay in place as police negotiated with the man
A spokesman for the Tower has confirmed at present the tower has been closed and we are working to resolve the issue. We are advising people who are wishing to visit choose a different date.
