to remove it from Millenium Bridge too). However, I'm not clear on the
basis of the change. I see you also modified the Wiki Etiquette to
Problem is, I see no reason that this image causes any problems. It is
linked with an <img> tag rather than copied somewhere else. If the
owner of the original image doesn't want it linked from elsewhere, there

London OpenGuide to use the picture, this is fine. If this is the case, the picture can
reinstated without a problem, and you should add some text to this effect.

Openguides mailing list (http://openguides.org/mm/listinfo/openguides-london
where you will be able to see and/or contribute to any further
