Environmental charity Greenpeace has tweeted this photo of the Shard climbers taking part in a training exercise yesterday. They appear to be using a ladder to climb through a hatch in the roof of a lorry.
The training appears to have been aimed at the first stage of the climb when the protesters emerge from a lorry via a ladder to start the ascent.
