However, a spokeswoman for Vivacity, which provides arts and culture, services in Peterborough, said there had been a delay in the installation due to a “scheduling conflict.”

The statues will now be ready for the public to see on Friday, May 25.

They will be situated on Queensgate Shopping Centre, adjacent to Carluccio’s, Leeds Building Society and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.
