Scout, 12, joins protest to keep Baden-Powell statue in Poole

A 12-year-old Scout has joined protesters calling for a controversial statue in Poole of the founder of the Scouts movement to be kept in place.

The council has announced it will be boarded up instead of temporarily removed after a public outcry over the initial decision to put the statue of Robert Baden-Powell into safe storage.

Monty joined people who had camped out overnight on Poole Quay to support keeping the statue in place.

Baden-Powell has been criticised by campaigners who have accused him of racism, homophobia and support for Adolf Hitler.
