The skull of an Australian Aboriginie taken from the land down under 100 years ago and kept by a British museum has been handed back.

Mr Trevorrow said: “There are about 600 Aboriginie remains held in British museums. There have probably been around 300 plus returns from the UK over the last ten years.

“I think British people are starting to understand our need for our tribal groups to have people returned to them.
