'Bring the Bayeux Tapestry to Portsmouth!' That is the cry today from our Culture, Leisure and Sport Spokesperson, Cllr Steve Pitt.
The Prime Minister is meeting the French President tomorrow and President Macron is expected to announce the loan of the historic tapestry to the UK.
Steve has appealed directly to the Secretary of State, Matt Hancock, putting the case for the tapestry to come to Portsmouth.
In an interview with BBC Radio Solent, Steve said 'The Overlord Embroidery at the D Day Museum, was created as the partner to the Bayeux Tapestry, so to display them both in the same city would be an amazing opportunity'.
It would be fantastic if Portsmouth could really get behind this and we all do all we can to make it happen.
