Sharp Street First World War memorial 'in safe hands'
HULL: A "street shrine" commemorating military personnel who were killed in the First World War is in safe hands, a councillor says.
The memorial in Sharp Street, west Hull, was removed from a wall last year ahead of a demolition scheme.
It is currently stored in Hull City Council's Wyke area office in Newland Avenue, which is facing an uncertain future after the authority announced plans to sell the building.
But Wyke area committee chairman Councillor John Fareham said the memorial was still available for public viewing on request.

Speaking at a full council meeting, he said it was hoped to return the memorial to Sharp Street as a condition of planning approval for new housing on the site.
He said: "Whether this will happen in time for the First World War centenary celebrations planned for next year remains to be seen, but it is still available for public inspection."
