The project to fit new energy-efficient colour-changing lights to Tower Bridge took a big step forward this week when abseilers attached the highest of the 1,800 LED lights, 61 metres above the Thames.
Royal Navy warship HMS St Albans passed through Tower Bridge on Saturday morning at the start of a five-day visit to the capital.
Two 148-year-old cartouches bearing the crest of the London, Chatham and Dover Railway have returned to their home at the southern end of Blackfriars Railway Bridge a year after they were dismantled for restoration as part of the Thameslink scheme.
Saturday recap: Historic railway crests returned to Blackfriars; warship in Pool of London; Tower Bridge abseilers http://t.co/rcYh8D5Z
@MsTiggerN1 Victoria's not back yet is she? At least it was still missing on Thursday. Cartouche work continues tomorrow.
