The Eiffel Tower, which is considered to be the French capital's major symbol, is visited by several millions of people annually.

"The Eiffel Tower has been closed and is in the process of being evacuated because a person is scaling it", a spokeswoman for the landmark said.

"We kindly advise our visitors to postpone their visit".

A representative told Independent.ie that the man paid entrance to the Eiffel Tower and at the second level at 149metres began to climb.

Photos and video footage of the man climbing up the tower surfaced quickly on social media as officials and rescue workers responded to the scene Monday afternoon.

Police are said to have made contact with the unidentified climber, but it is unclear what his motivation was. In 2015, James Kingston climbed the edifice without safety ropes and without permission, dodging security cameras.
