A man who allegedly stripped naked on top of a statue in central London before breaking off its sword and biting it has demanded to be deported back to the Ukraine.

Charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and criminal damage, Dan Motrescu, a 29-year-old Ukrainian, dismissed his lawyer this morning and asked to face the charges in his native country.
