Does anyone know why there's a giant spider's web on the London Eye? I don't think it was there yesterday. Is it just promotion for a new Spiderman film or something?

It might be one of these mysteries we will never get an answer to. A bit like the strange fact that all the trees down the west side of Kennington Road have little plaques with the names of astronauts on them about 10 ft off the ground. The only answer I ever saw about why this was that made any sense was that if they were any lower down people would steal them.

It could be something to do with the Fantastic Four movie in which the Eye features and where the cast did their press interviews today.

Is that the new Thames water mains?

Went up on the roof and had a look - James is right, it's a cut out of the Silver Surfer on the front of the wheel's usual spokes.

The silver surfer appeared this morning although I thought it was Spiderman at first! Apparently it's all for the premiere which is on tonight - featured on London Tonight apparently, although I didn't see it.
