A mosaic footpath has been unveiled at Robin Hood shopping parade in Dagenham.

The path commemorates the history of the parade and features the former Robin Hood pub which lent its name to the shopping area.

It is one of a series of improvements at three shopping parades in Barking and Dagenham funded by Transport for London.

The Robin Hood parade also benefited from £60,000 from Lidl which built its Longbridge store on the site of the former pub.

Further improvements to the parade include replacing damaged forecourts with more modern materials and new street lighting.
