October 25, 2020 – Teenage British daredevil Adam Lockwood is the first Instagram monkey to have been filmed hanging by one hand from the 340-metre-high chimney of the thermal power plant in Plomin, Istria – the tallest building in Croatia
In the latest installment of his social media posts, teenage British Instagram monkey Adam Lockwood has posted a short video of a recent visit to Croatia. Posted to his ‘thelittlenuisance’ Instagram page on Friday, the video shows Adam hanging by one hand from the top of the 340-metre chimney of the thermal power plant in Plomin, Istria. The chimney is the highest structure in Croatia.
In the text which accompanies the video posting, Lockwood thanks a Croatian peer for inviting him to the country in order to tackle the climb. He also thanks the Croatian accomplice for the video footage, implying that Lockwood was accompanied on his illegal entry to the site – and filmed – by a local.
The chimney and plant are under the authority of the national Croatian electricity company HEP. Both HEP and the Croatian police are investigating how the pair gained access to the site in order to make the heart-stopping climb.
This is not the first illegal ascent Lockwood has made. This Instagram monkey has over 34, 000 followers on that particular platform and has posted pictures of himself atop buildings in Malta, Madrid, Barcelona, Edinburgh and in Italy. In previous videos he has half0heartedly used the excuse of not being able to understand ‘warning’ and ‘no entry’ signs that he comes across because he does not understand the language they are written in. If accompanied this time by a local, this is an excuse he cannot use for his climb in Istria.
Instagram monkey Lockwood said that he and his accomplice illegally entered the property of the thermal power plant at 2am to avoid the workers. The actual ascent of the chimney took two hours. The pair are said to have climbed down again the following night, having spent 21 hours within the compound. Lockwood has a further 8000 subscribers to his Youtube channel which has several videos of similar ascents he has previously made.
