Bus Stops In London Were Closed Last Week Due To A Polar Bear In The Road

Just when you thought the TFL’s excuses for delayed services couldn’t be anymore unbelievable, they throw out this doozy. And for once, they weren’t even joking.

Yep, that’s right: commuters of London were forced to take alternative routes due to a great big polar bear blocking the road. OK, so it wasn’t an actual living polar bear, but it was a polar bear nonetheless.

More accurately it was a giant animatronic polar bear as big as a double decker bus.

The clunky looking beast was stationed outside Shell’s London office by 60 Greenpeace activists on Wednesday morning in protest to the companies work in the arctic, which the group believe puts the area at a high risk of oil spills.

Alongside the activists were Hollywood actress Emma Thompson who read a poem she’s written decrying the activities of Shell.

What next, an elephant causing tailbacks around Elephant and Castle? Let's hope not.
