As of this morning the London Eye isn't spinning - seems someone climbed the beast early this morning:
The London Eye has been closed after a man scaled the 135-metre high observation wheel. Officers were called to the famous London landmark at 0600 BST and are now trying to persuade him to come down. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said it was not clear whether the man was a protester.
Well whoever he is he picked a nice day for it... more to follow if and when he falls/climbs down/is shot in another health and safety mishap.
