London's famous Speaker's Corner will be officially reopened to the public today following refurbishment. The area is one of the capital's most famous gathering points for demonstrators to gather and for speakers to protest.
Large trees have been planted on the site near one of Hyde Park's entrances to reduce noise from the nearby traffic. Grassy areas on the corner have also been extended and more plants have been introduced.
