Reagan statue for US embassy in London

A statue of former US President Ronald Reagan will be unveiled outside the US Embassy in London on Monday, 100 years after his birth.

The 10-foot bronze statue, which will stand opposite a statue of President Eisenhower, was commissioned to "recognise Mr Reagan's contribution to ending the Cold War".

A piece of the Berlin Wall will also be installed in front of the plinth.
