The statue of Black Lives Matter campaigner Jen Reid has been removed from Bristol and placed in a lorry skip by the council - which warns residents will decide what replaces the Colston statue.
The replacement statue, which was only erected 24 hour previously, depicted Ms Reid after the statue of controversial slave trader Edward Colston was toppled and thrown into the harbour last month.
A spokesperson for Bristol City Council said: "This morning we removed the sculpture.
"It will be held at our museum for the artist to collect or donate to our collection."
Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees issued a statement yesterday about the need for a 'democratic process where the people of Bristol decide the future of the plinth'.
He said: “My relentless commitment is to build a city for all Bristolians, with all our differences.
"To this end, the future of the plinth and what is installed on it must be decided by the people of Bristol."
