As part of Plymouth Labour's local manifesto we promised to light up Plymouth's landmarks.
The first one to be lit up properly is the iconic Smeaton's Tower on the Hoe.
"I honestly believe that the new lights will be an instant hit. I feel really strongly that as a city we need to turn to face the sea again. We have an amazing natural heritage and unique position. For too long we have lost sight of our maritime links and I think it is time we rediscovered our connection to the sea. Lighting up Smeaton's Tower will be hugely popular I predict and it is happening because of Plymouth's Labour Council."
