London Assembly asks TfL to explain why scheme’s designer attended trust board meetings
The role Thomas Heatherwick played in the Garden Bridge debacle has been questioned by a London Assembly inquiry into the project.

Heatherwick was controversially appointed to design the £175m scheme in 2013. The scheme was binned in 2017 after then-new London mayor Sadiq Khan decided no more public money should be lavished on the project.
