The authorities in Prague are planning to ban "street artists" wearing enormous animal costumes in the centre of the city. At present tourists can pose for photographs with 10 or so pandas, polar bears and Little Mole figures.
These attractions are governed by regulations on street art, or busking, but officials have now decided that they do not qualify for that category. The ban is due to come into effect from the autumn.
