Kings Cross’s glorious El Alamein fountain was switched off for a moment this morning.
It gets cleaned a couple of times a week, according to the council worker who flicked the switch.
“You wouldn’t believe what foreign material winds up in here,” he said. “Hungry Jack’s burgers, doner kebabs, you name it.”
He reached up and screwed up one of the fountain’s spokes and on went the water.
Braving the chlorinated breeze, it was a perfect time to capture the fountain without its characteristic splash.
