'Spiderman' scales Sydney skyscraper and is arrested again


A French climber, known as 'Spiderman', is facing charges after scaling a 57-storey building in Australia.

Alain Robert was arrested by police when he reached the top of the building in Sydney without ropes or any other safety equipment.

He has climbed a number of the world's tallest buildings over the years and has been arrested almost as many times.
