MP’s call for bronze statue of a monster

A Bournemouth MP plans to apply for National Lottery funding to put up a bronze statue of Frankenstein's monster in Boscombe.

Tobias Ellwood, who represents Bournemouth East, is hoping the council will agree to the statue being sited on the roundabout at the bottom of Sea Road or in Shelley Park.

The author of the Frankenstein, Mary Shelley, is buried in St Peter's Churchyard and her son Sir Percy Florence Shelley used to live at Shelley Manor in Boscombe.
