In Brief: Missing map section goes on show

A missing section of London's oldest map, featuring old St Paul's Cathedral with its big spire, has turned up in Germany. The section, thought to be one of 15, was engraved on copper plate and dates from the 1550s. The cathedral lost its spire in 1561 and was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. The map section is being shown at the Museum of London from 2 April to 10 May.
