DEAD REMEMBERED

DEAD REMEMBERED: Ucatt general secretary Alan Ritchie and London mayor Ken Livingstone unveiled a statue at Tower Hill in London yesterday (Wednesday) to commemorate construction workers killed on site. The construction union commissioned sculptor Alan Wilson to design the work, which depicts a 3 m-tall building worker on a 2 m plinth.

The statue's inscription will be: 'For the thousands of building workers who have lost their lives at work, we commemorate you. For the thousands of building workers who are today building and rebuilding towns and cities across the United Kingdom, we celebrate you.'
