The tower is currently being refurbished and when finished will stand more than 150 metres tall. From the top, Kingston caught some breathtaking views of London at sunrise.

Once Kingston reaches the highest possible point he leaps between ledges using both hands and feet to balance.

He then hangs high over the capital using just one hand.
