Staff at the Eiffel Tower shut down the Paris landmark on Wednesday afternoon in protest over a new access policy that they say is generating "monstrous" queues for tourists.Access to the monument, which welcomed more than six million visitors last year, was blocked from 2 p.m. GMT, according to a sign at the base of the tower.Staff are angry over a decision last month to start setting aside half of the Eiffel Tower's daily tickets for people who buy them online in advance and choose a scheduled time for their visit.
