It kept out would-be marauders for centuries – but it seems that Hadrian’s Wall is no match for selfie-obsessed tourists.

The wall is the largest Roman archaeological feature in the world. It was built between the River Tyne and Solway Firth under the orders of Emperor Hadrian in 122AD to keep the unconquered Picts out of the Roman Empire.
