Striding Man Down

Breaking news: a giant metal sculpture of a Striding Man (2008) with attendant flying birds by Scottish artist Andy Scott has been demolished in a car accident (title link). The sculpture stood on a roundabout in Tullibody, Clackmannanshire, Scotland. It now looks like a pile of scrap metal. This is the problem with roundabouts: impatient drivers have a tendency to cut across them. Living near a roundabout makes me aware of this danger. It's one of the reasons I object to the London Borough of Redbridge wasting public money on an egg whisk to tower over Gants Hill Roundabout (CLICK).
