A memorial for late Queen legend Freddie Mercury  is set to be unveiled in West London next month.

The 'Hollywood style' honour will be outside the The Centre library in Feltham, the town where Mercury lived in his teenage years after coming to London from Zanzibar.

Councillor Paul Jabbal was part of the committee that pushed for memorial.

He told The Hounslow Chronicle: “I am delighted that at last we are honouring Freddie Mercury's memory and his achievements with a permanent memorial.

"As well as celebrating his life and success, it can serve as a reminder to local people that it doesn't matter where you come from, if you work hard you can succeed in whatever you do.

“I'm looking forward to welcoming his family, friends and some band members to Feltham to show how proud we are to be associated with such a legendary artist.”
