Finding home for 9/11 sculpture 'incredibly difficult'

We backed the 9/11 project when the sculpture first came to Battersea but finding a permanent home for it has proved incredibly difficult, whether it be opposition from Boroughs or bureaucrats. Clearly this can't continue.

As a result I've asked my team to find a permanent home for the sculpture on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The Park was home to a Games based on tolerance, harmony and respect, and will soon be home to a massive multi-dimensional and vibrant community - the perfect riposte to those who sought to divide the world on 9/11.
