Blimey! Watch a chap hang 490ft above London using just one hand

I got an e-mail only yesterday asking, Blimey!, why don’t you feature more articles about the eccentricities of the British. So imagine my delight when this story came through today.

Free climber James Kingston decided to climb the South Bank Tower in London, and after jumping over a massive gap, hang around (literally, actually) with his one hand 490 feet off the ground. On a crane.

Talk about daft.

Anyway, why only one hand and not two? That’s what I would do. Actually none of that. I’m watching Britain’s Got Talent finals on the ITV Player whilst supping my tea. Much safer.

Blimey! is your daily dose of British news and features for anglophiles everywhere! This article was carefully written by Tim Holt, a British blogger, photographer and actor based back in the UK after many years of living in America. Forever torn between two magnificent slices of sod.
