The City of London Police has closed Tower Bridge due to a Police incident.
The bridge is currently closed whilst they deal with an incident involving a man who has climbed onto the side of the bridge. Many have claimed that he is sunbathing when in fact he is in distress.
A number of officers have been sent to deal with the incident.
The London Fire brigade has also sent a number of resources to the scene including an aerial ladder appliance and a fire boat.
The RNLI has also been mobilised to the incident and has rescued the man from the water after he jumped. It is unclear how serious the man’s injuries are as a result of the fall from quite some height.
