Bromley Council claims it owns Henry Moore statue

Bromley Council has claimed it owns a statue which Tower Hamlets Council is about to sell. The statue which is nicknamed Old Flo used to belong to the Greater London Council which was abolished in 1985. Tower Hamlets assumed responsibility for it but Bromley Council says it is actually the owner.

If Bromley's claim is true, it would put an end to Tower Hamlets' plan to raise money by putting the statue up for auction.
