London Connection: X marks the spot
The centre of London, Oxford Circus has recently undergone a £5mill face-lift, based on Tokyo’s ‘scramble crossing’ and just in time for the flood of Xmas gift shoppers.

Now you can cross to your hearts content without ‘scrambling’ and hoping you don’t get the ‘big bang’ – see what I did there?
