The Royal Institution hits the buffers.

The Royal Institution’s building in Mayfair – the place where 10 chemical elements were discovered and where Michael Faraday first demonstrated the power of electricity – has been put up for sale in an attempt to cover the charity’s mounting debts.

Scientists responded with shock that potential buyers had been shown around the RI’s imposing, grade I listed building on Albemarle Street in central London, with a view to selling the property for more than £60m.
