Chinese journalist tries to infiltrate tower with anti-craft missiles
London: A Chinese journalist tried to infiltrate a London public housing tower which has anti-aircraft missiles installed on its roof thrice, even as tenants claimed their home has become ‘a target’.
The Fred Wigg Tower near London`s Olympic Park has anti-aircraft missiles mounted on the roof of their apartment building, and security, police, military and media coming and going like it`s a high street bottle shop.
The journalist was accused of attempting to bypass the security detail assigned to the public housing complex at Leytonstone, and walk unnoticed towards the lifts on the ground floor, The Age reports.
On his third attempt, however, security evicted him from the building and called in the London Metropolitan Police.
It is uncertain if he was attempting to uncover a weakness in the protective guard around the armed building for the sake of a news story, or simply to push the boundaries of his profession.
“He was pounced on,” David Enright, the lawyer who has represented residents in their legal fight against the missile installation, said.
