  • I reported this last year summer. Lewisham say it's not their land and then Bromley say the same thing. Environmental agency has been there a few times, they pushed the bike under the bridge to hide it but the heavy rain causes the bike to be washed to the location where your photo has been taken. Sad really, shows how little they actually care for the river and it's inhabitants.
