Museum set for memorial

Drivers Jonas Deloitte has submitted an application on behalf of Tsunami Support UK for a memorial at the Natural History Museum for the UK victims of the disaster.

The DCMS has contributed a £550,000 grant for the scheme, which has been put forward to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea for approval. "We are immensely grateful to the DCMS and to the museum for making space available," said memorial project board chairman Michael Holland. "We can think of no better place to remember the lives of the 151 UK citizens who perished in the 2004 tsunami."

Museum director Dr Michael Dixon added: "I hope that this memorial will not only bring comfort to those who lost loved ones but also act as a reminder to us all of the sometimes destructive force nature can be."
