Abandoned bikes: street art or inconvenience?

It can take a while to work out how some abandoned bikes reached the state they are in now!

If you consider abandoned bikes to be more an inconvenience than a form of street art, you can get them removed by emailing a photo and description to environmentalactionline@westminster.gov.uk and they will send you an acknowledgement email with a seven-digit reference number.

Before removing abandoned bikes, councils have to leave a notice of their intention on them for seven days and to retain them for 14 days after removal.
