Line not drawn under rogue paint

The red line stops only to cross roads

A two-mile line of red paint is causing confusion in central London.

It begins on the pavement at a bus stop in Euston and only stops for roads, starting again on the pavement on the other side.

The red line then winds its way through Covent Garden, the Strand and on to Temple Tube station before thinning out on the Embankment.

Camden Council, Transport for London and electricity suppliers say they did not put it there.

Theories include it being a drunken prank or street art.

The line has been turning the heads of people who live and work in the area.

But they are still unable to draw a line under the mystery.
