Image of the statue of Winston Churchill in Parliament Square, which has been boarded-up. The bronze sculpture of the former British prime minister was recently the target of graffiti during BlackLivesMatter protests.
The statue of Winston Churchill was created by Ivor Roberts-Jones and is located on a spot referred to in the 1950s by Churchill as “where my statue will go”. It was unveiled in 1973 by his widow Clementine, Baroness Spencer-Churchill, at a ceremony attended by the serving Prime Minister and four former Prime Ministers, while Queen Elizabeth II gave a speech.
