The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire was joined by Academy players, Jonathan Miles and Olumide Durojaiye, to officially unveil a remarkable sculpture at Capel Manor College in Enfield.

'The Cockerel', by renowned artist Ivor Abraham, was originally donated to the college two years ago and has been restored and staged by Tottenham Hotspur - soon-to-be neighbours of the College.

Enfield will become the new home for the Club's new state-of-the-art training centre, which will be in close proximity to the College near Bulls Cross.

The sculpture is one of a pair created by the artist using modern sculpture techniques, laser printer computer paper and fibreglass.

It was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 2000 and purchased by the then Duke of Devonshire for his wife, the now Dowager Duchess, as an 80th birthday present.
