Extreme window cleaner faces probe

Health and safety chiefs have launched an investigation after a window cleaner was filmed working 40ft up - without a harness or ladders.

The video of the video cleaning working on a building in Bath, Somerset, has been uploaded on to YouTube.

Passers-by stopped to watch the daredevil climb out of a top-floor window and over a balustrade before clambering around pillars.

And on the level below, he inched along narrow ledges above windows, again without safety gear.

But health and safety officials at the local council were less than impressed and have launched an investigation.

Another probe was started by a restaurant in the building, where a spokesman said: "We were shocked. We take health and safety extremely seriously."
