    An exhibition opening at the New Art Exchange gallery in Nottingham today is all about questioning our "British Values".

    Creator Sarah Maple has been working on the collection over the last two years while there's been a considerable amount of national uncertainty.

    Here are some photos from her "Brexit" series...

    Tea cup and saucer

    Ms Maple said she was inspired by the feeling of nostalgia for "the good old days" during the Brexit campaign.

    The gallery describes the work as bold, brave, mischievous and occasionally controversial.

    They believe it challenges perceptions of cultural and religious identities.
