A man has climbed to the top of the Ulster Bank building in Dublin on Dame Street, causing a traffic lock down and street closures.
Traffic has come to a standstill on Dame Street as a result of a man climbing to the top of the Abercrombie and Fitch building, causing police and emergency services to rush to the scene.
Onlookers and passersby have also stopped to see what was going on as he scaled the building incredibly close to the edge, and Ger Gilroy of Newstalk tweeted this image of the man.
