It is not the first time people have tried to scale the huge building.

In 2019, then-teenager, George King-Thompson broke the law by climbing up the building.

He scaled the skyscraper with his bear hands almost reaching the top of the building in just 45 minutes.

Mr King-Thompson was given a six-month sentence in a young offender institution.
