Big Ben climbed by 2 climbers from Sussex

Harry and Simon Westaway from Lewes in Sussex climbed Big Ben as part of the anti war demonstration taking place in London today. More on the BBC News site. They were representing action by Greenpeace. The climb in itself is a remarkable piece of publicity for the demo and it is also a staggering breach in security. The 2 climbers were arrested and later released without charge.
