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.

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.'
