A memorial to former Labour Party leader Michael Foot has been unveiled in Plymouth.
The memorial, in Freedom Fields Park, was paid for by donations from a public appeal.
"The support the appeal has received from Plymouth businesses has been incredible and testament to how popular Michael was" said Luke Pollard, one of the organisers.
Mr Foot served as MP for the city from 1945 to 1955, before going on to win a seat in south Wales in 1960.
"Michael loves benches where he could sit down in a park and read" said appeal chairman Peter Jones.
"It's fantastic that the memorial overlooks Plymouth Sound... he felt that the sea defined the city".
A teenager who boasted about turning £2,000 into £21 million has been sentenced to 26 months in jail.
Sam Cook conned more than £100,000 from unsuspecting clients, after presenting himself as a successful investor and promising to invest his clients' money into stocks.
Instead he took the cash for himself and used it to buy a flat, take holidays abroad and bought himself a fake Ferrari.
He was sentenced at Plymouth Crown Court last week, where the judge told him he should be ashamed of his actions.
You are a man of previous good character, but these offences are serious, so serious that a custodial sentence is inevitable.
It is plain to me that this company you set up was fraudulent from the start.
You used money that was not yours to go on overseas holidays, and present an image of success. You should be ashamed.
