The eerie and entrancing structure can be seen looming over the mayor’s office and Tower Bridge, completely open to the public and guarded by Colonial Marines who were on the look out for the stray Xenomorph that broke free in the area.

Another of the painted eggs that was to be auctioned for charity has been stolen. The Our Team egg by the artist Charle Anson was taken from its stand outside the National Portrait Gallery. Last month, two of the eggs were stolen and then returned.
