Sculpture to honour victims of Birmingham pub bombings nearly complete

Work is underway for three new memorials for the victims of the 1974 Birmingham Pub bombings.

The tree like sculptures will be permanently placed outside Birmingham New Street station, close to the site of the explosions.

Metal leaves will bear the names of the 21 people killed in blasts at two pubs on 21 November 1974.

The memorials are being made by Blackburn-based artist Anuradha Patel, who said: "As a memorial to the tragedy, so they're providing shape and creating a memory for people."

They are expected to be in place by October.
