Ponts des Arts bridge in Paris evacuated after weight of "locks of love" causes railing collapse

PARIS - It's a tradition that has spread to bridges around the world: lovers secure a lock and toss the key in the water, promising that their love will last as long as the lock.

But it may be a case of too much love in Paris.

The Ponts des Arts bridge was evacuated over the weekend after part of a railing collapsed, the Daily Telegraph reports.
