MORRISON Construction has tightened security on its Anderson High School building site, in Lerwick, after a thrill seeker dressed up as Batman climbed one of the site’s two cranes to take a selfie, on 19 April.
Balazs Onhausz, an artist from Scalloway, was arrested by four police officers after returning safely to firm ground.
After being questioned and issued with a fixed penalty he was released later the same night.
On Monday a spokeswoman for Morrison Construction said: “Security has been tightened further as a result of this incident.”
Onhausz said: “I have always loved climbing, from when I was a kid. Whenever I see a tall building or object I just feel like I want to climb it.
“When I saw the cranes I didn’t see them as cranes, I just saw a new climbing challenge.
“There are people all over the world doing this sort of thing and there are some really creative photos – I like making my own, for me its an extension of my art.”
