From BBC News website:
Tower parachute jump duo arrested
Two men have been arrested after a pair of base jumpers parachuted from
the top of Blackpool Tower.
Lancashire Police said two men were arrested on suspicion of criminal
damage after security netting at the top of the tower was cut.
Base jumping, which stands for Building, Aerial, Span, Earth, is the
practice of parachuting from fixed objects such as bridges or cliffs.
The tower saw a similar stunt 18 months ago but nobody was arrested.
