Plans to honour the first stripper to appear in London with a blue plaque have met resistance from residents of her former home.
English Heritage had planned to commemorate Phyllis Dixey, a pioneering burlesque dancer who is credited with bringing striptease to the West End of London during the Second World War, with a plaque outside her home in Surbiton.
But residents of Wentworth Court, whose permission is required, have objected to its wording, which reads: "Phyllis Dixey 1914 to 1964. Striptease Artiste lived here in flat number 5."
English Heritage said negotiations were continuing.Reuse content
