The man was at a height of 324 metres.

The man started climbing down the Tower at about 4.00 p.m. yesterday,when security officers said he had gained entry together with other visitors, and after he gained access to the highest balcony, the man jumped over the security barricades and hung down. The man gave up at about 9.30 p.m., and was the arrested. The Police are still trying to establish the man’s motive.
