Historic England | Slave trader statue, dumped by protesters, does not need to be re-installed

Historic England has said it does not believe the statue of slave trader Edward Colston, which was dismantled by protesters on Sunday in Bristol, must be reinstated.

The non-departmental public body is responsible for protecting historic sites in England and marked the bronze sculpture, which was erected in 1895, as a Grade II listed monument.
