Great Wall of China gets terrible repair job
This has to be the worst repair job ever.

China's government's efforts to restore the Great Wall seems to have failed after they cemented over the 7th Century medieval world wonder.

The poor job has disturbed both China's population and historians alike.

It was said that the repair had taken place to protect tourists from falling masonry and debris by blanketing sections of the wall with cement.

The repairs were carried out in 2014 but they have only come to public attention recently.

The restoration has since been condemned by people on social media with one person saying the 'cultural relic is now worthless'.

The Great Wall of China is the only man made structure that is visible from space.
