Eiffel Tower shutdown for pickpockets menace

The Eiffel Tower shut down for six hours because of a staff walkout in protest against a surge in pickpocketing gangs.

Workers say the gangs are increasingly threatening them with assault or abuse.

The company managing the major tourist attraction “thanked the public for its understanding” and said it “regrets that visitors… are being punished”.

About seven million people go up the tower every year. The tower reopened on Friday afternoon.
