These pictures show the moment a man tried to evade police by escaping from a top floor flat using a cable wire.
The man was spotted hanging from his window in his bare feet after Police forced entry to his Kentish Town property this morning.
He appears to jump out of third floor balcony and can be seen clinging onto the window ledge.
He then grabs onto some cables and begins scaling the walls to make it to the ground.
Pictures show him swinging past other balconies using only the cable wires for grip.
At one point the man, dressed in a brown top and black leggings, perches his feet on the second floor window before swinging off the walls again.
However his hasty exit was not successful as police had swarmed the property by the time he hit the ground.
The escape artist was handcuffed and driven away in a police van – as these pictures show.
Met Police have been contacted for comment.
