Paris 'love locks' on a bridge

Paris 'love locks' removed 巴黎拆除塞納河橋上"愛情鎖"


It's the end of the affair.

Attaching a 'love lock' to the Pont des Arts before throwing the key into the River Seine in Paris has become a tourist tradition.

But the romantic gesture has turned into an eyesore and also a hazard. The bridge is weighed down with nearly 50 tonnes of metal.

Last year, one section of the railings gave way.

The bridge has been closed as workers remove the locks.
