Urban designer Anthony Meats, who is proposing a London strategic walkway from Hampstead to Whitehall via Portland Place, envisages the latter with extra-wide pavements and lined with public art. Potential funder Reebok is keen, but alas wants to rename a long part of the route 'Reebok Way'. The company would also like to see effigies of sporting giants along Portland Place.

A case of 'When the boot goes in . . . '
