Teddington's Phantom Framer has been spotted in central London

Isabelle Aron

Earlier this year, someone decided to spruce up the street signs of Teddington by decorating them with some fancy-looking gold frames. The anonymous Phantom Framer has been laying low for the last few months but now he's set his sights on bigger and better things and has ventured into Zone 1 to unleash his signature frames on Lexington Street in Soho and Jubilee Gardens, near the London Eye.

The mysterious frame-enthusiast told the Evening Standard that he had his eye on Downing Street but as the sign is 20 feet in the air, it was a bit tricky to reach. Sure, height was the problem – never mind the whole security issue.

But the Phantom Framer hasn't forgotten how he started out. Here he is doing what he does best: bringing a bit of class to London's dog poo signs.
