Man illegally enters Tower of London - home of the crown jewels The Metropolitan Police have launched an appeal after a man illegally entered the Tower of London last month. The man can be seen on grainy CCTV walking through the famous landmark that houses the world-famous crown jewels, which are worth up to £5bn. According to police, the man was seen walking around the grounds at around 10.50pm on Saturday 6 April - hours after it closed. He was approached and challenged by security at the Tower of London but managed to make off. The unknown man was last seen climbing down towards the shore of the River Thames near St Katherine Dock, on the northern bank.

British Olympic triathlete Stuart Hayes has shattered his pelvis after crashing into a deer on his bike in London's Richmond Park.

Hayes, 40, who helped Alistair Brownlee win gold at the 2012 London Olympics, was cycling down a hill when a deer rushed across the road in front of him.

"As I hit the bend a deer ran straight out across the road into me. I hit it on the head -- it sent me flying and I landed on my hip. Originally I thought I was fine but when I tried to stand up my leg just buckled," Hayes told the Evening Standard.

At the 2012 Games, Hayes was selected to represent Team GB as a 'domestique' to Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee, helping the brothers to gold and bronze medals respectively.
