Video: Bath's daredevil window cleaner with a head for heights
A daredevil window cleaner has been captured on film balancing on a ledge without a safety harness on the third floor of a building in Bath.
More than 1,000 people have viewed the Extreme Window Cleaning clip on YouTube, which shows a man working above the Loch Fyne restaurant, at the corner of Milsom Street and George Street.
During the three-minute film he is seen to climb out of the top floor window and onto the other side of the stone balustrade, before walking around the outside of the building.
Later on he is seen doing the same thing on the level below, but this time walking along the top of the narrow windows - but again without any kind of safety equipment.

A member of staff at Loch Fyne said the incident was being dealt with internally by the restaurant chain’s owners Greene King, and added that they had been in contact with the health and safety team at Bath and North East Somerset Council.
B&NES today confirmed it was investigating the incident.
It is understood that the floors above the restaurant are occupied by the hotel side of the business, Milsoms, which has a number of rooms available for guests.
A Loch Fyne Restaurants spokesperson said: “We take health and safety extremely seriously and fully expect the same from external contractors. Therefore we were shocked by the video footage. When the video was brought to our attention we immediately moved to prevent this from happening again and have launched a full investigation into how this could have happened at all.”
