Tower Hamlets Council has caused uproar by releasing plans to build two hijab-shaped arches at either end of Brick Lane, as part of a £1.85m "cultural trail". Local resident Tracey Emin - a woman I can't help thinking should be required to wear a face mask by law - has damned the proposal as culturally insensitive. As arches go, this one looks rather elegant, but what a waste of money! The council has extended the deadline for complaints to 22 February. So tell your local councillor what you think.
