Woman chains herself to Leicester's Bowstring Bridge

The Leicester Mercury reports:

A protester chained herself to Leicester's Bowstring Bridge this morning in a last ditch effort to save it from demolition.

The woman, who called herself Karen, breached the razor wired security cordon around the Duns Lane bridge, in Leicester's West End, at 6am.

She said she had wrapped herself in chains and attached herself to a girder on the bridge, which about 40ft above the road.

Speaking down from her position, she said she had taken the extreme step because she believed demolition was about to begin today.

And the BBC News Leicestershire pages have a video of her.
