Brechin City FC have installed the so-called ‘Freedom’ sculpture – based on a likeness of Mel Gibson in 1995 flick Braveheart – at Glebe Park, Angus.

The artwork, officially called the Spirit of Wallace, was created by local man Tom Church, and previously stood at the entrance of the Wallace Monument in Stirling.

But it was put into storage in 2008 after 10 years on display at the monument - after it was targeted by vandals.
