The park will be a focal point for public events
Residents are being asked to dig deep to help fund a 5.5m futuristic park in west London.

The 18.5 hectare (45 acre) space named Northala Fields in Ealing will have a fish pond and an amphitheatre for public events.

The park's most dramatic feature will be four giant conical mounds designed as a shield from the noise and pollution from the nearby A40.

Money raised will go towards building play and educational facilities.

A visitor centre and a cycle bridge are also planned for the site, which Ealing Council hopes will include "elements of biodiversity, renewable energy and land art".
