Bromsgrove war memorial work 'may start in 2013'

Work to put up a new war memorial in Worcestershire could start in the new year, the group behind the plans said.

Bromsgrove District Council has given outline planning permission for the proposals for Crown Close in the town.

A Portland stone memorial near St John's church would commemorate those who have fallen in all conflicts.

Bromsgrove Armed Forces Memorial Fund said it hoped work would begin in 2013 with a view to the memorial being ready by Armed Forces Day in June.
