Parents of machine-loving small children should hurry down to Wandle Meadows where an ENORMOUS crane is currently in use.

The device will be there be for a short time – workers said probably just the one day – although an extensive concrete standing has had to be laid to support its weight. Workers said they believed it would be removed later.

The works are related to upgrading the power supplies for the nearby Thameslink railway line, where Siemens have been installing new power systems to feed the upgraded Class 700 trains which are currently being phased in.
