Statue likely to be taken down

The Echo has reported that the Ted Bates statue is likely to be taken down.

While Sue Rolfe, from the Bronze Age Sculpture Casting Foundry told the Echo: 'We've heard the statue hasn't been well received, which is a really unfortunate thing to happen, And I feel deeply for the club and the artist but we just cast what has been carved'.

If it comes down there has to be something to go in its place

The statue is pretty bad, not a good reflection at all. The thing that worries me if they take it down who will do the new one? The last sculpture should surely have seen the glaring mistakes?!?!
