Good cause of the day
From 6 June to 2 July, WaterAid's Great British Stink exhibition is held at the London Bridge City Pier, showing photos by Victorian photographer Thomas Ball. The photos depict some of the dramatic changes to water infrastructure and sanitation that took place during the 19th and early 20th centuries, and aim to raise awareness of people around the world who still live without safe water supplies and sanitation facilities. It's free to visit.
