Six Greenpeace protesters who scaled Britain's tallest building have left police custody, the environmental group said.
The six women were arrested on Wednesday night on suspicion of aggravated trespass after climbing the Shard in London as a protest over drilling in the Arctic.
Greenpeace UK tweeted: "All six ice climbers out of police custody and on their way home."
It did not mention whether the protesters were charged.
Six Greenpeace protesters who scaled Britain's tallest building remain in police custody this morning after being arrested last night on suspicion of aggravated tresspass.
They were driven away by police in an unmarked white van to the sound of cheers from supporters gathered at the foot of the landmark.
One of the six-strong group has reached the top of The Shard. A video feed from the Greenpeace website shows Wiola, 23, from Poland - the youngest of the climbers - fly a flag at the summit. The rest of the group is waiting a short distance behind. They will now start their descent.
The six women who are scaling The Shard building in London are just 18 metres from the top, according to Greenpeace press officer Ben Stewart.
One climber has been nominated to "free climb" the final ascent, meaning she will use no aids such as ropes.
Wiola Smul, 23, from Poland may be the only climber scaling to the top of The Shard.
