A statue of Jen Reid has taken the place where a statue of a slave trader stood until it was torn down.

A statue of a black protester with a clenched fist in the air has been erected Wednesday morning in Bristol in the west of England.

The statue of the female protester is located where the statue of the slave trader Edward Colston stood until it was torn down and thrown into a river in connection with protests for black rights in early June.

It writes the news agency Reuters.

The authorities was not informed about the installation of the statue.

Edward Colston was prominent in the trade of about 80,000 men, women and children, who were forced from Africa to America in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The statue, which was erected in the early hours of Wednesday morning, depicts Jen Reid. She was among the angry protesters when the statue of Colston was toppled in June.
