Last week, urban adventurer James Kingston went for a stroll up Wembley Stadium’s 400-ft arch. What a view!

Unlike previous self-conceived escapades (he got nicked scaling a tower in Dubai) this was all above-board (well, above everything actually) and supported by EE and stadium officials.

Come to think of it, it’s probably only a matter of time until this experience gets commercialised, Up at the O2-style. Imagine the selfies!

We should add that he got a cheeky lift most of the way up… but the final climb was up to him. As was the standing-on-the-top-without-fully-freaking-out-and-falling-off.
