A London council has decided a multi-million pound sculpture created by Henry Moore would be more useful translated into cash.
It was originally sold by the sculptor - for a massively reduced price - on condition it be displayed in a socially deprived area.
But in a meeting tonight Tower Hamlets Council decided to sell it off in order to pay its debts.
Councillor Shahed Ali says the money will be ploughed into services that will make a big difference to the local community, but the decision has been criticised by Sharon Ament from the Museum of London.
