Massive crowds at Tower of London force organizers to ask visitors to stay away




An art installation at the Tower of London, designed to pay homage to British soldiers killed during World War I, has become so popular that officials are asking potential visitors to stay home.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the Great War, “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” features a sea of ceramic red poppies surrounding the Tower of London — 888,246 in all — with each representing the memory of a soldier killed between 1914 and 1918. But in recent days, the memorial site has become a victim of its own success
