Plans for a quarter-mile-high Millennium Tower for the City of London have received a serious setback, with the Royal Fine Art Commission declining to support the idea.

The 1,265ft skyscraper - which if built would dwarf the Canary Wharf tower and be visible for 20 miles - was described by the commission as "simply out of scale", chairman Lord St John of Fawsley said.
