Teens handed caution after scaling 111-metre Sydney tower




Two men were filmed climbing to the very top of the AWA Tower in Sydney's CBD this evening.

Two teens have been released with a caution, after climbing more than 100 metres up the outside of a Sydney tower last night.


Police were called when a group of four young people were seen climbing up the AWA Tower on York Street just after 4pm yesterday.


According to witnesses, two of the group only went halfway up while the other two boys, a 13 and 14-year-old, continued to the very top.


Witnesses said they saw the two taking selfies from the crows nest of the 111 metre tall AWA Tower

The AWA Tower is about 111-metres tall and witnesses said they saw the boys appear to be taking selfies from the top of the heritage listed building.


Police gained access to the closed building and climbed up from the inside to try and reach the two boys.


The teens were arrested and taken into custody just after 6pm, where they were met by their parents.


"The boys will receive an official Youth Caution under the Young Offenders Act," police said in a statement overnight


The AWA Tower is 111 metres tall and located in York Street, Sydney.
