Climate protesters target Tower Bridge Paralympics logo

A banner unfurled over the Paralympics logo on Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge was closed after an environmental group dropped a banner over the Paralympic Games logo.

The sign reading Climate change, our next challenge was placed over the Agitos at 14:00 BST, by the group Climate Siren.

Two people accessed the high-level gantry to unfurl the banner and three people have been arrested, City of London police said.

The group said it wanted global co-operation over climate change.

Transport for London said the bridge was re-opened by 15:50 BST.

Police said they arrested a man and a woman on suspicion of causing criminal damage and a public nuisance and another man for assisting them.
