MANILA, Philippines – The giant Olympics rings, which have hung from London’s Tower Bridge since the end of June, have been removed.

The rings were 25-meters wide and 11.5-meters high and weighed three tons.

The decoration was one of many across London while the city hosted the 2012 Olympic Games.

The 2012 Paralympic Games, meanwhile, will begin in the city on August 29. -- Mornings @ ANC, August 22, 2012.
