A work of art is being unveiled today to celebrate the sexuality of second world war codebreaker Alan Turing. He was convicted for being gay in 1952 and it took until 2013 for him to be pardoned for his supposed crime.

The art will be displayed outside a bar in Milton Keynes close to where Turing completed his work at Bletchley Park.
