    A man has committed suicide by jumping from the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

    He had scaled the iconic 320 metre structure to a point between the second and third levels.

    Emergency services said suicides from the tower are not unheard of but it is rare from such a height.

    They said he spoke English, but the Foreign Office in London told euronews he was not a British citizen.
