Lions on the loose to promote November events at The DenBemused tourists strolling along the South Bank on Wednesday morning may have been forgiven for believing a couple of the Trafalgar Square lions had slipped their chains from beneath Lord Nelson's steely gaze and taken a leisurely prowl along Westminster's teeming South Bank.
However, the only stampede these friendly felines were hoping to start was towards the Millwall ticket office.
The cats in question were of course our very own Zampa and Bolina, prowling the popular riverside location to promote The Lions' upcoming programme of events for November including the magic of the FA Cup, a Stadium Tour hosted by Lions legend Robbie Ryan, FA Youth Cup action and an U21s derby against Crystal Palace - and that's just for starters!
The duo mingled happily with tourists and shoppers, providing a welcome moment of relief for customers queueing for the London Eye, as well as a welcome photo opportunity for the endless surge of giggling youngsters eager to have their pictures taken with the Millwall mascots.
