The O2 wins approval for rooftop walkway

AEG has won planning permission to install a walkway over the top of the O2 Arena, creating a new tourist attraction for South East London ahead of the Olympics.

We've fancied walking on it ever since James Bond crashed on to it in the World Is Not Enough, so this is good news as far as we're concerned. Precisely the entertainingly pointless sort of thing London should do.
