THE BBC is facing calls to remove a statue on its London HQ because it was sculpted by a notorious pedophile.
The statue of Prospero and Ariel, from Shakespeare’s Tempest, above the main door of Broadcasting House was sculpted by Eric Gill in 1932.
The building, on London’s Upper Regent Street, has just had a £1billion refit.
The BBC was unable yesterday to say how many complaints had been made but MP John Hemming raised the statue in a Commons debate on child protection last week, describing it as “unfortunate”.
Gill died in 1940 but it was not until his diaries were published in 1989 that acts such as incest with his sister and two of his three children at their home in Ditchling, East Sussex, became known.
