Guardian columnist Afua Hirsch has defended her claim that Nelson's Column should be pulled down - because he was a "white supremacist".
The writer has faced strong criticism since the opinion piece was published in the national newspaper.
But she stands by her views -
Medals belonging to the personal surgeon of Lord Nelson have sold for nearly 14-and-a-half thousand pounds. The medals belonged to Sir George Magrath who looked after the Admiral from Norfolk.
His medals went under the hammer at the Bonhams auction house - they were expected to fetch £12 thousand , they went for £14,400.
