Number's up

Over in the City of London, there are concerns over towers, but not exclusively to do with terrorism. No, the City Fathers have had an aesthetic dilemma: should they intervene over two prominent digits, '42', on the exterior of the building we used to think of as the NatWest Tower, but must now call Towe r 42. The digits were put there as an experiment, but the City planners have now decided that time is up, and have written demanding their removal. Signage may be OK for the BT Tower and Centre Point, but standards in the Square Mile are being well and truly maintained.

But it is not yet clear if pornographer Larry Flynt's scheme for a lap-dancing club off Fleet Street will need planning approval. . .
