Spitfire Tribute Wins Support From No. 10!

On the steps of 10 Downing St, with Cllr John Hannides.

On Thursday the Prime Minister gave his backing to the Spitfire Tribute Foundation.

Southampton's fund rasing campaign to build a fitting and permanent memorial to the famous WW2 fighter plane has received a welcome boost. Prime Minister Gordon Brown met a delegation of business leaders, heritage experts and city councillors at a reception at Number 10 Downing Street, helping to elevate the campaign to a national and international level.

The campaign aims to raise £1.5m to fund structure which would be 100ft long.
