Unesco concerns on Tower of London

Breaking News

Conservation experts from the United Nations are visiting the Tower of London to judge whether it should be placed on its Heritage in Danger list, Unesco has said.

Unesco, the UN's cultural organisation, fears that the 900-year-old Tower has become so overshadowed by skyscrapers and other modern buildings that its historic value is being damaged.

They have warned the UK to make greater efforts to protect the Tower, which is one of just 830 locations around the globe to feature on Unesco's prestigious list of World Heritage Sites.
