Kingston is seen walking to the top of the building, jumping onto a construction platform, and then clambering up the crane itself. The Southbank Tower is 116m high. Kingston estimates that the crane stretches another 50m up into the sky.

Kingston has previously scaled cranes in Southampton, and performed a backflip on top of the Moscow Bridge in Kiev.

He says he has now been up the Southbank Tower four times - but this was the first time during the day. He started the climb at 5am.

As a free runner, Kingston trains extensively for his stunts. He says there is little danger involved; if there were more, he wouldn't attempt it in the first place.

Kingston was accompanied by a handful of friends who explored the tower while he completed the crane climb.
