    War memorial to African-Caribbean soldiers unveiled in London

    A memorial to the African and Caribbean soldiers of World War one and World War Two has been unveiled in London.
    An estimated two million African-Caribbean soldiers fought in both world wars.

    The sculpture, in Windrush Square, Brixton, is formed of two 6ft (1.8m) long obelisks, with a combined weight of just under five tonnes.

    Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said the "recognition today is long overdue".
