Nine Greenpeace protestors have been bailed after a failed attempt to do a high wire walk on the Greenwich cable car.

Police were called out to the Emirates Air Line stunt last Friday (July 10) at 5.04am.

Transport for London said the protestors had managed to access the south tower, situated in the river.

Greenpeace later admitted their plan to do a high wire walk along one of the cables had to be abandoned because it was "too wobbly".

Following the incident, British Transport Police arrested seven men and two women at the scene on suspicion of trespass and conspiracy to commit criminal damage .

The protestors, whose ages range from 21 to 45 and come from as far afield as Edinburgh, have been bailed to return at a later date.
