What the Cathedral describes as 'a bold new artwork' is a twelve-foot-tall bright red effigy of the ruler of the African kingdom of Benin, Oba Ovonramwen, who was deposed by a British expedition in 1897. There is no doubt about the celebratory intention of this work: its artist, Victor Ehikhamenor, describes it as 'reawakening Oba Ovonramwen and every other person that was violated during that oppressive attack on the Benin Kingdom.'

Middlesbrough defender Marc Bola has been warned and ordered to complete an education course over a homophobic social media post from when he was 14.
Bola, now 24, accepted a Football Association charge brought after the historic tweet, written in April 2012 when he was a child at the Arsenal Academy, came to light last year.
The complaint has been dealt with in the strictest confidentiality inside the FA, who are understood to have offered guidance and advice to John.
The informal letter cites a number of instances where the employee believes John has over stepped the mark.
John, in the complaint, is accused of shouting, being dismissive, giving unjust criticism, using aggressive tactics and malicious behaviour.
In a statement released to Sportsmail, John said: ‘At the heart of who I am, I’m an activist and am direct in my communication style.
As a senior Black woman joining the football-industry in the middle of a pandemic, I am honoured that The FA empowered me to try to be a change agent.
‘A challenge of driving change is that sometimes, I have to be uncomfortably direct. I ask the questions that no-one wants to ask. I have difficult conversations about topics that people haven’t engaged on for centuries and doing that can mean pushing boundaries and people.
‘I have and always will listen to feedback and continue to grow daily as a leader and I hope that the leeway and scope that we as society afford strong, opinionated and vocal Black women continues to grow with me.’
Big clubs pressuring match officials to give decisions their way seems like it could be even more important than naughty tweets.
