Pictures released of the new Harry Kane statue have been described as the 'stuff of nightmares' and even compared to Glasgow's Willy Wonka experience on social media.

The statue was first commissioned in 2019 by Waltham Forest Council in north-east London but pictures have only just emerged, as revealed by The Big Issue.

The statue is of Kane sat on a bench in a full England kit with a football on his lap.

It cost more than £7,200 and was completed in 2020 but the council has not been able to find a space in public to celebrate the Chingford-raised footballer.

But the statue celebrating England's all-time top goalscorer, with 62 goals for his country at the time of writing, has been ridiculed online for how it looks.
