A Heritage Foundation plaque has been unveiled at the London office of Brian Epstein, the man who discovered and managed The Beatles.

The plaque is on the front of Sutherland House, next door to the London Palladium, where Epstein ran his NEMS Enterprise management company.

Actress Vicki Michelle, 80s popstar Adam Ant and actor Andrew Lancel, who will play the music mogul in a production next month, all attended this afternoon's ceremony.

Epstein, who died from an overdose in 1967 aged 32, would have been 80 this year.
