Cleaning the London Eye

A team of cleaners, complete with abseiling equipment, climbed up the London Eye during the night to start giving it a clean. The project will take three weeks and is being done by the cleaning firm Karcher.

The team will clean two or three capsules each night, removing the thirteen years of grime that has built up since the Eye started operating. However during the day, the Eye will operate as normal.
