A new statue of the Queen has already been targeted by pranksters.

The figure of Queen Elizabeth II was unveiled on Thursday at St Andrew’s Gardens, Gravesend.

It was then pictured with a cone on its head last Friday – a day after the artwork was revealed.

Steven Fry, 40, who lives in Hong Kong, was visiting his childhood town when he saw the statue.

He said: “I was with my friends and we came out of the pub when one of them said we should go and see the new statue of the Queen.

“As we walked toward it my friend noticed the cone and said ‘oh my god, she’s already got a cone on her head’.

“It’s typical Gravesend.”
