A more than 100 year old man who posed no threat to them was allegedly pushed so hard that he fell into the harbour where his slave ships used to dock.
Although the incident took part in daylight, and in full view of witness, including Herald journalists, the Bristol police department issued a statement to say that, during a “skirmish involving protestors, one man was injured when he tripped and fell.”
…Just over 20 minutes after the police statement was public, a video was tweeted which clearly showed that the man in question was a statue of slave trading Tory MP Edward Colston.
…Protestors insist those still interested in Edward Colston could visit him at the bottom of the harbour if they like.
