A STATUE of King Henry VIII has been returned to its home in the Historic Dockyard after a much-needed makeover.

The fibreglass statue of the Tudor monarch, which stands in front of the Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, was looking tired and worn after many years of standing outside exposed to the elements.

So local artist Michele Appleton was asked to give him a lick of paint. She said: ‘I used weatherproof gloss to make sure he stays fresh for years.’
