BASE jumper filmed leaping from tower block in Canary Wharf

A BASE jumper was filmed leaping last night (November 10) from a tower block in east London. Marcus Starling captured the remarkable moment the unidentified thrill-seeker hurled himself from the roof 'The Madison' apartment block in Canary Wharf which has 53 floors. Base jumping itself is not illegal in the UK but accessing sites to jump from without permission can sometimes lead to charges being brought.
