Climber scales London tower

Solo free climber George King-Thompson has scaled another London tower a few months after being imprisoned for reaching the top of London's iconic Shard.

King-Thompson, 21, climbed the 23-storey Unex Tower in Stratford, east London, without ropes.

His feat came days after doing the neighbouring Stratosphere Tower.

But he admitted it was fraught with danger."I can train all I like but there's always that little bit of a percentage of a chance that I could die," he said.

King-Thompson said he wants to highlight awareness of climate change through his climbs.
