Statue of BLM protester appears on Colston plinth

The statue of a Black Lives Matter campaigner appears in Bristol on Edward Colston plinth.

Artist Marc Quinn says he was inspired after seeing protester Jen Reid standing on the plinth during the 7 June protest.

The statue is meant to be temporary and has caused both praise and criticism by the public, as permission was not given for it to be installed.
