Foxtons ditch the spikes

July 05 2015
Estate agent will remove anti-homeless measure after bad publicity

Foxtons has agreed to remove metal spikes from outside Holborn branch, after a petition against them attracted more than 21,000 signatures.

The petition called on the estate agent to “remove the anti-homeless spikes”, describing them as inhumane. It was tweeted by the Green party leader Natalie Bennett and Labour London assembly member Tom Copley, and in a few hours it had attracted widespread support.

A statement from Foxtons said: “We understand that the studs outside our West End office have raised some concerns within the community and we will be removing them shortly.” It said spikes at a second branch would be removed too.
