Visitors to the Marble Arch Mound in London on Saturday (August 14) were heard questioning the safety of the new infamous attraction which has so far cost £6 million.

In mobile phone footage captured during a descent of the mound, a visitor was overheard remarking "next month someone's gonna break these" as they climbed down the steps.

Security can be heard in another bit of footage asking people to "keep moving" around the 25-metre high viewing platform, presumed to be a measure to prevent overcrowding, giving visitors only a few minutes at the top of the mound. The Marble Arch Mound's ticket website states a visit "can take around 45 minutes".

Earlier this month, MailOnline reported seeing "loose electrical wiring" on the viewing platform.

The Marble Arch Mound opened on July 26 and closed after two days following complaints about the quality of the attraction. It reopened 13 days later without an entrance fee. Westminster Council deputy leader Melvyn Caplan, who led the Mound project, has now resigned.
