Mother of Emmeline Pankhurst was born and raised on the Island

Plans are in place to erect a statue in Laxey of a significant figure in the suffragette movement.

Emmeline Pankhurst's mother, Sophia Goulden, was born and raised on the Isle of Man and is credited with having a large influence over her daughter's beliefs.

The Friends of Sophia Goulden charity has chosen experienced sculptor Sean Hedges Quinn to undertake the project.

Mr Quinn - who has an impressive portfolio of previous work - says the devil is very much in the detail:

A just giving page has been set-up to raise funds for the project.
