If you think the sport of parkour isn’t quite intense enough, we have just the video for you.
A clip has emerged of a bunch of British enthusiasts taking parkour to another level by leaping and bounding across what appear to be the rooftops of Chungking Mansions, 17 storeys above Nathan Road in Hong Kong’s Tsim Sha Tsui shopping and entertainment district, after they successfully outrun a security guard.

48 hours in Chungking Mansions: life in another world

The video was posted online on January 29 by the Storror group, “a collective of seven elite athletes with big individual characters who were drawn together by a shared innate passion for movement and love of adventure”, they write on their Facebook page.
