Nelson's Column spring-clean

Nelson's Column
One of London's most famous works of art is under wraps for its first clean in twenty years: the statue of Vice Admiral Viscount Horatio Nelson in Trafalgar Square.
Nelson's Column, designed by architect William Railton in 1838, now looks like an emaciated skyscraper. The cleaning with minor repairs to the face is expected to take two months.
