The Yatton Royal British Legion says it is delighted after the village received one of 149 statues commemorating the 100th anniversary of a World War One battle.

The statues by Nic Joly were made to mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, and were dotted at random at locations across the country.

The Yatton sculpture will now be kept at St Mary’s Church.

Legion member Simon Reakes said: “The RBL feels very privileged to receive this statue and are grateful to the Reverend Tim Scott for letting us place it in a permanent display.”
