Tourist climbs Brussels statue, breaks it

An Irish tourist was filmed climbing a recently-renovated statue outside the Brussels stock exchange, causing part of it to break off.

The man was arrested and the building’s management has called for him to cover the cost of repairs.

Is this the summer of bad tourists? BBC Travel explores why raising awareness of misbehaving travellers is a good thing.
