Rom Skatepark in Essex listed by English Heritage
A London skatepark is to become a listed building - the first of its kind in Europe to be given protection.
The Rom, built in Hornchurch, east London, in 1978, was designed by Adrian Rolt and G-Force.
It is the best example of a small number of skateparks that survive from the 1970s, according to English Heritage.
