Nottingham City Council has announced it will review street names to ensure none make references to the slave trade.
The move comes in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.
Councillor Rebecca Langton, Portfolio holder for Communities said; “Our initial view based on local knowledge is that we don’t believe there are any statues in the city linked to the slave trade. However, I have asked for a review of sites to be carried out.
“We’re proud that in Nottingham we have statues and plaques celebrating the diverse and rebellious input of figures in our city’s history, such as Eric Irons, Samuel Morley, George Africanus, BAME Women and of course our worldwide icon for social justice, Robin Hood.”
Neighbouring Gedling Borough Council has also said it will undertake a review.
Earlier this week activists tore down a statue of slave trader Edward Colston and threw it into Bristol Harbour – it was later salvaged and is set to be placed into a museum without removing the graffiti and ropes placed on it by the protesters.
Council across the county have taken similar actions with several statues across the UK have been scheduled for removal and roads being renamed.
