Calls flood Dutch 'angel' hotline

Thousands phone cathedral after sculpture of winged lady with handbag and mobile phone draws attention.

    Thousands from across the world are phoning the St John's cathedral in the Netherlands, after the church commissioned a strange sculpture - a young winged woman, talking on a mobile phone.

    It is not what you would expect perched up high on a 13th century Dutch cathedral, but the sculpture in Den Bosch has attracted worldwide attention, prompting the cathedral to set up an official "angel" hotline, with calls from as far as China and Latin America.
