No interactions present.
...it seems to lack the round, prickly fruits that I would expect to find on London Plane trees in winter, but it has strange round white berries, in long streamers?

How to take close-ups with cheap phone and hand-lens:
Field Guides for Budding Botanists:
Not possible to tell from this photograph if it is var. serialis or the more robust version var. parallelis.
Actually, Martin, if you look very closely, the thickness of the interstitial membrane, coupled with the longitudinal groove, clearly indicate that it's var. parallelis.
Of course, these berries are normally only present for a few short weeks, so we were lucky to be able to observe them.
Thanks for the correction; I guess var. serialis may be extinct?
Ha ha ha, very funny!
A street is the natural habitat of the London Plane, is it not? Or is it Heathrow Airport?

....but you can hardly use that as an excuse!

It gets worse.
Q. Which terminal at LHR will you find the London Plane at?
A. Terminal Tree.
I think we'll have to leaf you alone for a while, Jonathan, bud perhaps you could shoot along to the Naughty Corner.
I would stipule-ate that you stay there for some time.
