BLM protesters cleared over toppling of Edward Colston statue
The Metro says Four protesters have been cleared of criminal damage for tearing down a statue of slave trader Edward Colston during a Black Lives Matter demonstration last year.
Rhian Graham, 30, Milo Ponsford, 26, Sage Willoughby, 22, and Jake Skuse, 33, walked free from Bristol Crown Court after the bronze memorial was dumped in Bristol Harbour in June 2020.
It came as protests against racism and police brutality erupted across the globe in the wake of George Floyd’s murder.
