Hand-Drawn Maps Of London: Westminster Kettling

Click to enlarge

Well here’s a first for our hand-drawn map series. A topical map. (Well, it would have been if we’d pasted it up last week, but near enough.)

Reader Paul Williams sends us this sketch of the recent student demonstrations in Westminster. The helicopter’s-eye view clearly shows the kettled-in crowd surrounded by a fluorescent rhomboid of officers. In their midst is that poor police van…it was just days from retirement.

Send your own hand-drawn maps of London locations to hello – at – londonist.com. As well as appearing on Londonist, the most original efforts will go on display at our Museum of London exhibition next April.
