A naked man climbed an equestrian statue in the heart of London’s Whitehall government district today, disrupting traffic. He “has been detained under the Mental Health Act,” according to The Huffington Post’s UK site:
The man was seen in a variety of poses on the statue of Prince George, the Duke of Cambridge, in Whitehall, central London, at times balancing precariously on the Duke’s head.
He was coaxed down after spending around three hours atop the statue, and put into the back of a police van.
