The department of culture, media and sport has listed 25 public sculptures for their historic interest, reports the Guardian (p12).

The sculptures include a 1949 statue of Lady Godiva in central Coventry and Elizabeth Frink's Blind Beggar and his Dog in the East End of London.

Heritage junior minister Tony Banks emphasised the breadth of the list: 'Public monuments and scuptures ... enrich people's experience of their local surroundings and create a special sense of identity. The works I am listing today ... are wonderful examples of art at its most democratic and accessible.'
