Freddie Mercury is being honoured with a official Blue Plaque.
English Heritage says the plaque will be placed at the home of the late Queen singer in Feltham, West London. The prestigious English Heritage sign, which shows buildings where famous people lived or worked, is likely to be placed near his home on Gladstone Avenue where he spent his adult life in the 1960s.
I can confirm that the English Heritage Blue Plaque Panel has approved an application for a blue plaque to Freddie Mercury. We are now working on getting all the required consents in place.

The 33 year-old victim was cycling to the shops when he was the victim of the unprovoked attack by three men.Read the full story ›
A cyclist was pushed off bike and repeatedly stabbed during what appears to be an unprovoked attack in West London.
The 33-year-old victim was cycling from the Rise in Greenford, towards Sudbury Hill tube on Saturday evening. After being attacked he got back o his bike and tried to cycle off, but collapsed shortly afterwards.
This appears at this stage to be an entirely unprovoked attack on a man who was merely cycling to the shops. Nothing was stolen during the assault.
We are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information about the suspects to contact us as soon as possible. It may be someone saw them hanging around the area in the minutes or hours leading up to the attack.
- The first suspect is described as black, around 25 years, about 6ft and slim. He wore dark clothing and is thought to be local to the area
- The other suspects were also black and aged about 21 or 22. They were skinny and wore dark clothing with their hoods up
