Developers who bulldozed a historic pub without permission will be ordered to rebuild it brick by brick.
Councillors are set to demand the recreation of the Carlton Tavern at Kilburn in north London following a campaign by local people.
The Tavern was the only building in its road to survive Hitler's bombs during the Blitz.
The manager, Patsy Lord, was horrified to discover two bulldozers ripping the building to pieces earlier this month.
Westminster Council's planning committee meets next week to consider issuing an enforcement notice ordering the Carlton to be 'rebuilt so as to recreate in facsimile the building as it stood immediately prior to its demolition'.
The pub's owners had earlier been refused permission to develop the site for housing.
Before the demolition, Historic England was planning to apply for listed building status for the Carlton.
