It's been an unlikely fixture of a dead-end side street in SE1 for the past nine years, but the full-size replica of Trafalgar Square's empty fourth plinth in County Street has now been demolished.
Stephen Hall's artwork – entitled Phantom – was installed in 2011 outside the Cul de Sac Gallery.
A year later a mini garden was created at the foot of the plinth.
In 2013 the piece was replicated in Munich's Wittelsbacherplatz as part of a public art festival.
"We wanted to bring a bit of contemporary art and the high-end culture that Trafalgar Square promotes right here into County Street, to the New Kent Road and the Elephant & Castle, and to do our bit to promote the regeneration of the area," Stephen Hall told us in a 2012 interview.
But with the Cul de Sac Gallery's lease expiring at the end of February, the artwork has now been reduced to a pile of rubble.
