Soldier's widow calls for better care of Grimsby Cenotaph

A soldier's widow is calling for better care of the Grimsby Cenotaph, which is currently covered in green algae.

Kerry Telford's husband Sergeant Matthew Telford was killed serving in Afghanistan in November 2009. She says an annual clean ahead of Remembrance Sunday is not enough, as people want to remember their relatives all year round.

According to those who regularly visit the area, it is often also covered in litter.

Last year North East Lincolnshire Council received a £10,000 National Lottery grant to carry out restoration works and repairs. The council says further cleaning of the statue, which was built in 1923 from white marble, would result in damaging the stonework.
