·1-min read

A monument honouring people who came to the UK on the Empire Windrush over 70 years ago has been unveiled outside Hackney Town Hall for Windrush Day (22 June).

Artist Thomas J Price created Warm Shores to celebrate the legacy of the Windrush Generation and their contributions to the nation.

Created using photo archives and digital 3D scans, the bronze figures are a physical representation of the African Caribbean diaspora.

"I feel honoured to be part of this celebration... my Jamaican grandmother came over as a nurse" Price said on his website.
