According to a report by CNN Portugal, five young British people are now prevented from accessing the 25 de Abril Bridge, which connects Lisbon to Almada, by order of the judge, after being arrested for climbing the structure, said the PSP.

The group was arrested on Monday after authorities were alerted to the fact that people were walking on the bridge's metal structures.

The group filmed and photographed themselves on top of the bridge, at almost 200 metres high, and shared the images on social media.

One of them wrote in a publication that he was detained for 35 hours for having climbed the 25 de Abril Bridge.

According to their social media profiles, the Brits are practitioners of 'parkour'.
