Sir John McDougall Gardens on the Isle of Dogs has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the country’s top parks.

It is the 12th green space in the borough to have been awarded Green Flag status, which is a sign to the public that it boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Tower Hamlets mayor John Biggs said: "We are absolutely delighted to receive another Green Flag Award.

"We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Sir John McDougall Gardens to such a high standard."

A record-breaking 1,970 green spaces in the UK and another 131 around the world have received a prestigious Green Flag this week.
