Spre

The spire looks to be capped out in this pic, where probably no more height increase until jacking.

Are they cleaning the windows already, they look brighter than before.
Or is it just the sunshine.

Hello. One question - is there any progress inside the tower? Some pictures maybe?

Thanks for the pics OTR! Good to have you back
It is definately a man, no doubt about that. You can see his legs, arms, head and can even imagine the helmet on his head (well at least I can). In one of the other pics you can also see the beam on which he is standing..



Edit - Damn coki, just take 1 minute to read something and you can see.......

Looks like those 3 bits ontop of the spire are the frames for the 3 light beacons.

If that is the very top, they must have been secretly putting other parts in the tower for a while, because as far as im aware of, we only know of 2 confirmed sections.
