Alice Williams replica statue moved to new island home

A replica of a ship's figurehead that has been used as a statue on Skokholm nature reserve for 85 years has been moved to the island.

The Alice Williams sank in 1928 but not before her figurehead was salvaged by renowned naturalist Ronald Lockley.

He kept the statue on the Pembrokeshire island where he founded the UK's first purpose-built seabird observatory.

Hours before the replacement was shipped out, sculptor Sean Kehoe told Peter Johnson on BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales how he created it.
