Calls to remove plaque unveiled by Prince Charles in Colombia

The mayor of the Colombian port city of Cartagena has said he will ask for a controversial plaque unveiled last week by Prince Charles to be removed.

The plaque is in memory of an English naval officers and his troops who laid siege to the city in 1741 in an attempt to take it from the Spanish crown.

The lack of mention of the Spanish losses was criticised by residents. One described it as "ignorant of history".
