A window cleaner at the Shard building could thank his lucky stars today, following an emergency 330 metres above the ground in central London.
Video (above) captures the moment when high winds buffeted a basket for window cleaners like a straw in the wind, near the top of Europe’s highest building, this lunchtime.
Emergency services rushed to the scene at London Bridge at 2.15pm.
Fortunately for the person involved, the incident appears to have passed relatively safely – considering events unfolded 72 floors up.
Ambulances crews at the scene said there were no injuries.
