Entertainment of a different sort from the Shard earlier this afternoon, and no doubt unplanned: the sight of the platform / cage dangling on several metres of cable from the end of the davit at the top the building, swinging and twisting around alarmingly in the wind, seemingly out of control. It had attracted the attention of some of the guys from Skanska working at B/Market, who had been watching it for a while and were speculating how long it would be before it parted company with it's moorings.
It was still gyrating at least 15 minutes later, then the thing appeared to be gradually hauled in and secured.
Think I may give the building a wide berth in future...
Does anyone know where we'll be able to hear the music from? I know the London Philharmonic will be accompanying the light show but I don't know where they'll be or if there'll be lots of speakers dotted around?
