A controversial float showing prime minister Theresa May with a ‘Brexit’ gun in her mouth has arrived in Norwich.
The float, which was made for a carnival in Dusseldorf, was brought to the city today as part of a country-wide tour.
And it attracted plenty of attention as it was driven around Norwich this evening.
Steve Bray, 47, from Port Talbot, said he paid £8,500 to have the float brought over to the UK.
It was designed by Jacques Tilly and made its debut at the Dusseldorf Carnival earlier this year.
Mr Bray said he has since raised more than £13,000 to transport the caricature around the country as part of the Theresa May Brexit Float Tour.
A small crowd gathered to take photos as it was parked outside The Forum today.
Laure Ollivier-Miins, a French-born sculptor who has lived in Norwich for more than 30 years, said: “I love it. It is a very powerful statement and that shows we are very anti-Brexit.”
Referring to a damaged section of the float, she added: “Look at the state of her head already, it’s a sign that she isn’t strong and stable.”
