The Pont des Arts (Love Locks bridge) collapse

Sad news for the iconic bridge

The Pont des Arts bridge over the Seine, (which has become a bridge where lovers go to express their love with an initialed padlock), in central Paris was closed for a few hours on Sunday after a metal grill laden with padlocks left by amorous couples collapsed onto the walkway.
Padlocks began appearing on bridges in Paris and other European cities more than five years ago left by people seeking to symbolise their enduring love - often inscribed with couples' names. Lovers typically throw the keys into the river.

There was a similar incident last year.  No one was hurt in the incident.
