IAN FLEMING statue to be erected in Kent

This is Kent reports that a statue of James Bond author Ian Fleming will be one of three life-size steel figures that will stand alongside a wooden bench on Dover's promenade. Fleming was chosen as the third statue by the public with 45% of the vote.

The other statues are Dame Vera Lynn, English singer-songwriter and actress who sang the wartime classic The White Cliffs of Dover, and local hero Jamie Clark, who brought the Olympic Torch into Dover and was the town's first Torchbearer during the 2012 London Olympics.

Ian Fleming's third James Bond novel, Moonraker, is set largely in Kent and includes action set at the White Cliffs of Dover.
