A statue in tribute to 19th Century Sikh soldiers has been unveiled.

The 3m (10ft) tall sculpture, by artist Luke Perry, has been placed in Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.

It commemorates the Battle of Saragarhi, considered by some military historians as one of history’s great last-stands.

Councillor Bhupinder Singh Gakhal, who helped develop the plans, said he hopes it will lead to more people knowing about the battle.
