Pooh-poohing those poohstick rumours...

  • Comment

Garden Bridge supporters have had a troubling time of late: a public probe over designer Thomas Heatherwick’s appointment; Lambeth Council walking away from lease negotiations for the bridge’s southern landing; and Labour’s mayoral candidate pledging to scrap the whole scheme.

But now the fight-back begins. Promoters, the Garden Bridge Trust, have announced that contrary to widespread media reports, visitors will not be banned from playing poohsticks should the 366m-long link be built.

‘We will only prevent people throwing items off the bridge if it is deemed to be unsafe,’ a spokeswoman explains. ‘We wish players attempting a game the best of luck keeping track of their sticks from 20m above the fast flowing River Thames.’
