ooer.... I heard today that the one on the Union Jack club is being removed because the Fire Brigade were called out to a 'jumper' six times over the weekend. Apparently the ones that are not on the edge of buildings can stay. Isn't such art *supposed* to shock?! And can't 999 operators simply tell callers to look more closely...?
More new ones are being put up - there's one being installed right now on the pavement on Waterloo Bridge
; they've been trying to fix it most of the day, but earlier the paving slab broke so they had to start again. There's another one on the truck ready to be installed at the other side of the bridge, but I don't think they'll get to that tonight! Unlike the roof mounted sculptures, these are iron rather than fibreglass, so hopefully will last a while before the moronic vandals get to work on them. But I'd be surprised if they last the week before being spraypainted.
