Foster sets doubts aside and agrees to sheep-herding stunt

Despite growing rumours that he was set to pull out, Norman Foster has confirmed that he will herd a flock of 30 sheep across the Millennium Bridge to open this summer's London Architecture Biennale.

While Foster has been signed up for the event for some months, the AJ understands that he was having second thoughts.

Other events are also being finalised for the week - which runs from 16-21 June - and can be found at
