A new hospital named in Captain Sir Tom Moore’s honour is reportedly in the works as Downing Street considers ideas of a fitting permanent memorial. The WW2 veteran, who captured the hearts of the nation with his incredible NHS fundraising during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, died on Tuesday at the age of 100 after a brief battle with Covid-19 and pneumonia. Boris Johnson has informed the Moore family that he is “enthusiastically looking” at plans for a permanent memorial. The family will have the final say after consultation with ministers.
