The Daily Telegraph reports that some Conservative councillors in Westminster have proposed moving the zebra crossing in Abbey Road used by The Beatles. They feel there are too many tourists who get in the way and cause accidents.
Cllr Lindsey Hall, a councillor in the Abbey Road ward, says: “Maybe it is time to end this once and for all and move the zebra crossing. It may end up coming to that.”
Cllr Judith Warner adds: “I have questioned with our transport department whether it is in the most appropriate place."
But it sounds as though efforts will be made to accomodate the concerns of the ward councillors in other ways. A Council spokesman says: "The issue with that particular crossing is the busy junction. The iconic crossing would be saved."
