Statue of Manchester peace campaigner Erinma Bell made from guns

More than 50 guns handed in during a police amnesty have been melted down to make a sculpture of a Manchester peace activist.

The bust has been created to honour Dr Erinma Bell, who has campaigned to rid the streets of Moss Side of guns.

More than 800 firearms were handed in during a two-week surrender in the North West in April following a spate of shootings in Salford.

The sculpture was produced by Guns to Goods, an arts-based initiative converting firearms into works of art.
