Tower Hamlets council could sell Henry Moore sculpture

A multimillion-pound sculpture by Henry Moore could be sold by its London owners.

The Draped Seated Woman was created in the 1950s and installed on the Stifford Estate in Tower Hamlets in 1962.

It was loaned to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 1997 by Tower Hamlets Council after it was vandalised with graffiti.

The council is due to decide whether to sell it or bring it back to London to be displayed at Canary Wharf.

Alice Bhandukravi speaks to Tower Hamlets councillors Shahed Ali (Independent) and Peter Golds (Conservative), New Local Government Network director Simon Parker, members of the public, and art critic David Lee.
