Helen Mirren - Dame Helen Mirren Backs Calls To Save London Park
Dame Helen Mirren is backing a campaign to save a park in her native London from developers building a sewer.
The Queen star was horrified to learn that parts of the King Edward Memorial Park in Shadwell, east London will be dug up as part of a $5.76 billion (£3.6 billion) project to install a 20 mile (32 kilometre)-long sewer underneath the River Thames.
She's added her name to a growing petition to keep the area intact and says, "I give my full support to the SaveKemp campaign.
"As a local resident I am aware how little green space there is in our area and hope that the beautiful King Edward Vii Memorial Park Green continues to be a garden space for the many local people, who have nowhere else to enjoy a garden environment."
