Black Lives Matter sculpture removed by Bristol city council

The sculpture of a Black Lives Matter protester, Jen Reid, which replaced a toppled statue of the slave trader Edward Colston in Bristol, has been removed.

The artist Marc Quinn installed the work on the empty plinth, left when a statue of Colston was torn down during protests in June.

The statue of Reid with a raised fist, installed in a clandestine operation, was removed about 24 hours after it went up.
