Paris’ Pont des Arts bridge Evacuated Pending Collapse
The Daily Telegraph sums up the situation
Thousands of lovers from across the world visit the Pont des Arts every year and seal their love by attaching a lock carrying their names to its railing and throwing the key in the Seine.
But police were forced to hurriedly usher visitors off the footbridge in central Paris at the weekend after 2.4 metres of railing collapsed under the weight of the collected love tokens.
Days ago, the following Twitter user posted a close-up of one of the last locks to go on the bridge.
