A Henry Moore sculpture has been unveiled in Greenwich Park - more than four years after it was removed.

The British artist's work, "Large Standing Figure: Knife Edge" has been sited on its original plinth, where it stood from 1979 to 2007.

It was then taken by the Henry Moore Foundation for an international tour.

The foundation has loaned the piece back for two years, and it will be in place for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Greenwich Park, in south-east London, will host the equestrian events during the Games.

The sculpture's return has been funded by The Royal Parks, The Friends of Greenwich Park, and London 2012.
