Bye Bye Love!

As we reported last year, love locks are a growing phenomenon in cities across the world. To recap, the trend is for you and your loved one to fasten a padlock with your names on it to a structure and then throw the key away, thus sealing your love for all eternity. Or something like that!
Unfortunately, it appears they are finally becoming a problem. Paris officials have begun the removal of nearly a million locks from the Ponts Des Arts Bridge this week. Last years railing collapse, caused by the extra weight, has sparked fears for the integrity of the whole bridge and the railings and 45 tonnes of extra weight are being ripped out. The railings will be replaced with plexi-glass to prevent future lovers from starting the trend all over again.
