Staff at the Eiffel Tower agreed to end their strike on Thursday evening, a union official said, meaning the monument will reopen on Friday.

The tower - Paris's most famous tourist attraction - closed on Wednesday afternoon in a dispute over a new access system that workers said had caused "monstrous" queues.

Each year over 6 million visitors go up the 342-metre (1,063-foot) tower in the French capital.
