London blue plaque scheme suspended after funding cuts

English Heritage says it is to stop its blue plaque scheme because government funding cuts have made it impossible for it to continue.

The organisation, due to celebrate 150 years of commemorative plaques in London in 2016, has had its funding cut by 34%.

BBC London's Alex Bushill spoke to Blue Plaques Panel member Gillian Darley.
