A daring base-jumper leapt from the Shard on Saturday morning before releasing a parachute and landing calmly on St Thomas Street.
Stunned onlookers snapped photos as the daredevil dodged traffic and landed beside the iconic building, before making a hasty escape with an accomplice.
The Shard is the tallest building in western Europe and has been a popular spot for base jumpers since it was constructed .
In 2012, while the building was still being built, an Essex roofer jumped from the building four times.
A Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed that officers were called to the area at 10.18am to reports of someone jumping from the building. No arrests were made.
A spokeswoman for the Shard said: “We can confirm that we are investigating an incident involving a member of the public this morning.”
