CRACK: Gibraltar’s Skywalk

THE Government has confirmed that Gibraltar’s latest tourist attraction has cracked just months after opening.

The Skywalk, which is located 340 meters above sea-level and boasts views of the Mediterranean, will have the affected section closed until further notice.

The Government said in March that the Skywalk could hold the weight of five Asian elephants or 340 people.

The tourist attraction which was opened by Luke Skywalker actor, Mark Hamill and Fabian Picardo, is believed to have been damaged by a tool and the Government are not ruling out vandalism.

The Government clarified that other layers of the Skywalk remain intact but replacement of the damaged glass may take up to 10-12 weeks.
