Marble Arch Mound, an artificial hill designed to draw visitors back to central London, was quiet on Friday 13 August, as the leading local politician behind it quit.

Westminster Council deputy leader Melvyn Caplan resigned over the much-mocked Mound after costs nearly doubled, to six million pounds ($8.3m).

In addition to the spiralling budget for the fake hill, it has drawn fewer visitors -- and more negative reviews -- than expected. So much so that the council has made the attraction free and is refunding those who previously paid to go up it.
