Former tour guide campaigns for statue of Henry VII

Melanie Phillips, a former tour guide at Pembroke Castle in Wales, has begun a campaign to construct a memorial to King Henry VII, who was born in the castle.

"The founder of the Tudor dynasty was born here but there's no statue at all. When I would show tourists around they could not believe it," said Phillips. The castle bears two small plaques acknowledging the birthplace of the king.

Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire MP Simon Hart says he favors the construction of the statue. Phillips is seeking ways to fund the project.
