A statue of noted slaveholder Robert Milligan has been removed from outside the Museum of London Docklands. Sadiq Khan earlier announced a review of all of London's statues and street names, saying any with links to slavery "should be taken down".

On Sunday, anti-racism protesters in Bristol tore down a statue of slave trader Edward Colston.

Milligan's monument was removed to "recognise the wishes of the community" said the Canal and River Trust.

There were cheers and clapping as the monument was lifted from its plinth using a crane.

The Museum of London Docklands said the statue of the prominent British Slave trader, who owned two sugar plantations and 526 slaves in Jamaica, had "stood uncomfortably" outside its premises "for a long time".
