Museums across the country are being urged to compete for the chance to provide a new home for the architectural remains of the former Baltic Exchange, damaged by an IRA bomb in 1992. Skanska UK, which has demolished the building to make way for Lord Foster's Swiss Re building, is offering parts of the facade, ironmongery, fireplaces and interior columns for permanent display in a museum. The items will be donated, rather than sold.
Museums or galleries interested in taking the pieces can view the items on offer on the website www. salvaged-baltic. com
