#EdStone is spotted in an outdoor seating area at a restaurant in London

Ed Miliband with #EdStone

Twitter users claim #EdStone is now on show at a posh London restaurant.

A stone tablet bearing former Labour leader Ed Miliband's pledges from the 2015 general election has been photographed in the outdoor area of the Ivy Chelsea Garden in London.

The original was last seen at a warehouse in Woolwich in 2015 and was thought to have been destroyed.

But people at the restaurant spotted a remarkably similar tablet - also with six promises on it.

The stone is partially hidden among leaves and plants in the outdoor dining area but also has the title - "A Better Plan. A Better Future".

The owners of Ivy Chelsea Garden, Caprice Holdings, said the tablet was bought shortly after the 2015 election.

Several replicas of #EdStone were made and auctioned off to Tory party donors, like the chairman of Caprice Holdings - millionaire Richard Caring.

A spokesman for his company said: "We bought the stone a couple of years ago at a charity auction.

"We thought it would be fun to have Ed's Stone, which was such an iconic image of the election, and put it outside in the garden.

"So many people comment on it and it was an opportunity too good to pass up."

After the Conservatives won power in the 2015 election, a national newspaper set up a hotline for sightings of #EdStone.

The stonemasons behind the eight-foot limestone block say they think the original was "smashed" and haven't been commissioned to make another one.

Steve Vanhinsbergh, co-owner of Stone Circle in Hampshire, also claims the slab is unlikely to have been strong and stable enough to be installed in the restaurant.

Mr Vanhinsbergh, who wasn't allowed to tell anyone he'd made it, said: "I'm 99% sure it's smashed. It was not returned here, but I know it was smashed because I know the man who smashed it.

"The original was too big - it was three metres tall. You couldn't lift it without a crane. It was 400kg (881lb).

"You have to handle it like a pane of glass. It will fold up. Like with all marble and stone, you have to treat it very carefully.

"I did think to myself we could be making a load of money out of this."

Labour was fined £20,000 by the Electoral Commission after the party missed out two #EdStone payments totalling £7,614 from its election campaign spending return, a breach of the rules.
