A bust of Edward Elgar has been donated to the University of Worcester to go in a building named after the composer.

The bronze bust, by former lecturer and sculptor Victor Heyfron, has been put on show in the university's Elgar building.

His busts of Elgar are also on show at the Royal College of Music and the Royal Worcestershire Hospital.

Mr Heyfron has made sculptures of Sir Cliff Richard, Hank Marvin and Eric Morecambe in the past.

He taught in the university's art department from 1972 to 1990.

David Morphy, president of the university's Alumni Association, said: "The bust now provides a personal welcome to all who enter the Elgar building and is a fitting tribute to Vic's contribution as a lecturer, tutor and warden of Bredon Halls."
