Sir Keith Park statue removed from Trafalgar Square

Breaking News

A statue of RAF hero Sir Keith Park has been taken down from the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square.

Sir Keith commanded RAF squadrons that defended London and the South East from World War II Luftwaffe attacks in 1940.

The 16.4ft (5m) tall glass-fibre sculpture had been on the plinth in central London for the past six months.

A permanent, bronze statue of Sir Keith will now be erected in Waterloo Place on the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain on 15 September 2010.
