9/11 memorial to be given new home at the Olympic Park

A memorial to the 9/11 terrorist attacks is being given a new home at the Olympic Park after being shunned by council bosses who refused to host it. The sculpture was salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Centre in New York and was a gift to the UK to honour the nearly 3,000 people who died.
