Boy pictured climbing on edge of Eureka Skyway bridge at Ashford over M20 in dangerous stunt
A boy has been pictured climbing over the edge of the Eureka Skyway bridge at Ashford in a dangerous stunt.
The shocking photo shows the youngster clinging precariously to the edge of the pedestrian bridge over the M20 at 7pm yesterday.
It is believed the boy and a friend had been practising free-running or Parkour - an activity where people climb and jump over obstacles in an urban environment.

The youngsters were later seen running away from the bridge before the picture was posted on Twitter.
A Kent Police said the force had not received any calls about the incident.
