MP Tessa Jowell Becomes A Google Maps Landmark

MP Tessa Jowell has appeared as a landmark between Big Ben and Westminster Palace, thanks to Google Maps, the BBC News has reported.

The former Olympics minister and current Labour MP for Dulwich and West Norwood said that she was not overly concerned about it being there.

She said:"In opposition, it can often feel like you've been forgotten in the public mind. I'm therefore grateful to Google for putting me back on the map."

Speaking to the UK's Guardian newspaper, Google explained that "the reason for this is that the information and listings contained in Google Maps are provided by a third party and this is included in that database."

At time of publishing, the "landmark" has received 31 reviews.

Google User Tammer said: "This is a must see London attraction. Situated in the heart of London next to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and Westminster Palace Tessa Jowell is simply amazing. Great for the whole family to visit. Just don't bring up the topic of Olympics (they seem to be a bit touchy about that for some reason) - otherwise simply charming.‎"
