Norwich – A Little Protest Up a Crane

There’s a little protest going on up a crane in Duke Street in Norwich.

Apparently, it’s a teenager called Alex Sidney from Dereham who has rather bravely (and I must confess, I wouldn’t be that brave) shinned up this crane. Three others have been arrested and they were apparently pleased that there was no security, although I’m sure construction project managers were hopeful that they didn’t have to employ teams of security 24 hours a day to guard things.

And this is the result, a substantial police, fire and ambulance presence at the scene.

The EDP have reported that Alex said:

“If I get arrested now or if I get arrested in nine hours the consequences will be the same so I might as well stay out for a bit longer.”

And, to be fair, he’s probably right.
