Protesters call for removal of Cecil Rhodes statue in Oxford

Thousands of people have gathered outside an Oxford college to demand the removal of a statue of imperialist Cecil Rhodes.

A group of councillors earlier backed the campaign to remove it and called on Oxford University to "decolonise".

Twenty-six Oxford city councillors signed a letter saying the figure at Oriel College was "incompatible" with the city's "commitment to anti-racism".
