Two members of a campaign group have been charged after they poured porridge and jam on a bust of Queen Victoria and spray-painted the word “cunt” on the plinth at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, PA Media reports.

Sorcha Ni Mhairtin, 30, and Hannah Taylor, 23 from This Is Rigged carried out the actions around on Sunday before reportedly gluing themselves to the plinth.

The group said it carried out the act to protest against increasing food insecurity.

Other stunts the group has carried out this year include occupying the royal dining room at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

This is Rigged has said it will continue to carry out similar actions until its demands are met. They include supermarkets reducing the price of baby formula to March 2021 prices and the Scottish government funding and implementing a community food hub for every 500 households in Scotland.
