THESE photographs have been sent to the Advertiser by a former Redditch resident who has been working on the new World Trade Centre in New York for the last five years.

Despite moving to America more than 36 years ago, ironworker Colm Burke still feels that Redditch will “always be his home” and takes every opportunity to write the town's name on parts of the ever-growing structure.

Mr Burke and fellow workers are currently busy building the 105th floor.
