Multiplex has secured an injunction banning four daredevil climbers from entering three of its biggest London construction sites.
The High Court has banned the four men – known for climbing tall buildings and bridges – from entering Multiplex’s 100 Bishopsgate, 22 Bishopsgate and Principal Place Tower construction sites.
Anyone found to have broken the injunction could be held in contempt of court and fined or imprisoned.
The injunction also bans any unknown persons entering the three sites without a licence or Multiplex’s consent.
CN understands that there is no history of the defendants entering any of the three sites, and that Multiplex’s court action was pre-emptive.
The four defendants listed are popular ‘freerunners’ Alistair Law, Rikke Brewer, Dylan Rhodes and Usama Quraishi, who have a number of videos of their exploits posted online.
Mr Law’s YouTube channel, which has 1.5m subscribers, includes videos of him climbing the O2 in Greenwich.
Mr Brewer’s YouTube channel, which has 30,000 subscribers, features clips of him climbing the Tyne Bridge, while Mr Rhodes has been pictured on top of the Severn Bridge.
A fifth defendant Imogen Anderson had a written undertaking accepted by the court, while claims against two other defendants were withdrawn.
In February Canary Wharf Investments brought an injunction against Mr Law, Mr Brewer and Ms Anderson to ban them from entering any part of the Canary Wharf estate.
A Multiplex statement on its website said: “On 31 July 2018, orders were made by the High Court of Justice (Claim No. HQ18X02657) prohibiting anyone from trespassing on the sites known as and located at 22 Bishopsgate, 100 Bishopsgate and Principal Place Residential.
“Anyone in breach of the injunction will be in contempt of court and may be imprisoned, fined or have their assets seized.”
