Heath and Callaghan to be honoured at Westminster Abbey
Two former prime ministers are to be honoured with memorial stones at Westminster Abbey.
Sir Edward Heath and Lord James Callaghan will become the first premiers to be recognised like this for half a century.
The Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev Dr John Hall, said: "The men and women who have contributed most to our island story and our nation's international influence are memorialised in the Abbey, including most prime ministers of the 19th century and of the first half of the 20th century.
"And yet no prime minister since 1956 has a memorial in the Abbey.
"I have decided, with the support of those closest to them, to include two prime ministers from the 1970s, each of whom gave dutiful service in their own time."
