A statue of Edward Colston, a 17th-century slave trader, has been toppled in Bristol by Black Lives Matter protesters.
Video footage shows the statue being pulled down using a rope.
After it falls during the protests on Sunday people can be seen dancing atop the statue and cheering.
The statue was then taken to Bristol's harbour where it was subsequently tossed into the sea.
It comes as thousands of protesters gather across the UK to march against racism following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis.
