Daredevil climber Adam Lockwood, 21, scaled the UK’s tallest building, ‘The Shard,’ Sunday morning before taking a selfie at the skyscrapers summit.

Emergency services were called to the scene following reports of a climber on the skyscraper. 

The Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service all rushed to the scene in an attempt to get the person down.

The area surrounding the base of The Shard was cordoned off, with rail passengers at the nearby London Bridge station being diverted to other exits. 

Police have said three arrests have been made. This includes the arrest of a 21-year-old man on suspicion of trespass.

Two other men were both arrested on suspicion of causing a public nuisance.  All remain in custody at this time.

Video posted on social media shows the climber making his way up the 95-story building just after 5:30 a.m. near London Bridge Station as police, firefighters and bystanders watched from the ground.

In 2020, Lockwood was pictured pretending to fall from The Madison building in Canary Wharf

He refuses to use any safety restraints, using only his grip and upper body strength to stop him from falling. 

Earlier this year in April the British adrenaline junkie filmed himself dangling above the sets of San Siro Stadium in Milan. 

In his footage he shows no fear as he risks his life hanging from the metal girders at dizzying heights, using only his arms to pull himself back up. 

The thrill seeker was previously banned by a court from climbing tall buildings but he breached the order, narrowly escaping jail.

Manchester City Council gave him a three year anti-social behaviour injunction order against Lockwood in July 2019.

The ordered prohibited him from riding on the exterior of buses, trams and trains, climbing on buildings and cranes and from entering construction sites in England and Wales.

Speaking previously, Lockwood said: ‘Hanging off things doesn’t feel like much, it feels surreal to be suspended that high with no safety, but like all my other hangs, my brain is blank, my heartbeat doesn’t go up, and it feels almost peaceful.

‘It’s something I know I can do and that 99 per cent of the world can’t and never will do, so I feel obliged to use my ability and enjoy doing it in the process. 

‘I love seeing things from height, I love having my body suspended hundreds of meters in the sky, I love the challenges of infiltrating secure places to achieve these goals and it’s something that has kept me alive since I started, and I don’t think I can give it up.’

Lockwood’s previous stunts have included dangling from the 262-foot tall San Siro stadium in Milan and reportedly posing as a worker to climb a 1,200-foot crane in Dubai. 

It is not the first time people have tried to scale the huge building.

In 2019, then-teenager, George King-Thompson broke the law by climbing up the building.

He scaled the skyscraper with his bear hands almost reaching the top of the building in just 45 minutes.

Mr King-Thompson was given a six-month sentence in a young offender institution.
