(BBC) Buxton anti-slavery monument unveiled in Weymouth

A monument commemorating the life of a leading anti-slavery campaigner has been unveiled in a dedication ceremony in Dorset.
Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton, an MP for Weymouth in the 1800s, was a driving force behind the abolition of slavery.
There are already memorials to him in London, Jamaica and Sierra Leone.
The £90,000 monument, carved by Weymouth College stonemasonry students, is the result of seven years of work by the Thomas Fowell Buxton Society.
