Death row woman in plinth plea


A British woman on death row in Texas is to make a plea for her release as part of the Fourth Plinth project in Trafalgar Square.

Brian Capaloff is to play a recording of Linda Carty, alongside a life-sized photo cut-out of her, during his hour-long stint on the plinth on Thursday.

Linda Carty was found guilty of murder in 2002 and sentenced to death by lethal injection, she hopes the recording will help raise awareness of what she considers injustices in her case.
