trafalgar squareIn a bid to encourage people to return to drinking a cup of humble tap water, Boris has unveiled a restored drinking fountain in the middle of one of London’s biggest tourist attractions.

Although Trafalgar Square’s water fountain was originally installed in 1960, it has undergone a major revamp to ensure it provides free water to thirsty visitors. The granite and brass water fountain on the east side of the square has been restored to full working order, retaining its original features with brand new water pipes. It will be inspected on a daily basis to ensure high standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

“It is fantastic news that a refreshing gulp of free London tap water is now available to the millions of people who visit Trafalgar Square every year,â€? Bozza explained. “Many old drinking fountains lie dormant and I hope this newly restored feature helps to ‘untap’ [see what he did, there? – Boriswatch Ed] a new trend in civic planning.â€?
