Protester who egged Margaret Thatcher statue ‘revealed’ as arts centre boss

The Metro says the man behind yesterday’s ‘first egging’ of a new Margaret Thatcher statue has been named as a prominent arts centre deputy director.

The £300,000 statue was targeted within just two hours of being lowered into place in the former prime minister’s home town of Grantham.

Jeremy Webster, 59, proclaimed he was ‘the first egg thrower’ on social media yesterday.

He reportedly made a ‘call to arms’ for others to join him at the statue.

The Telegraph reports that the protester put up a now-deleted post on Instagram which said: ‘South Wales miners are heading up to Grantham to remove her head’.
