Glasgow Icon under threat!!

I see on the news tonight that the Council are planning to spend £60,000 on raising Wellington and his Horse to stop the placing of the traffic cone on his head at Royal Exchange Square!!!

For around 30 years this has been going on and has become a tourist attraction in its own right!

A "save our cone" online campaign has started already with even celebrities signing up.

So he's got a reprieve? Maybe with a few more reviews the Duke of Wellington Statue could make Glasgow's number one attraction. He is an icon after all!
