Four people appear in court in connection with pulling down the Edward Colston statue

A heavy police presence was outside court today (Mon) as four people appeared in connection with pulling down the Edward Colston statue. Officers escorted several protestors away after previously warning people would be fined up to 10K for gathering outside. Rhian Graham, 29, Milo Ponsford, 25, Jake Skuse, 32, and Sage Willoughby, 21, were due at Bristol Magistrates Court today. One woman wrote 'support the Colston four' in chalk outside the court - and was then spoken to by police in a van. Filmed on 25th January 2021
