The celebrated poet Ted Hughes has been added to a dossier linking him to slavery and colonialism by the British Library.


The former Poet Laureate, who came from humble origins in Yorkshire, was found to be a descendant of Nicholas Ferrar who was involved in the slave trade some 300 years before Hughes was born.


Ferrar, born in 1592, and his family, were 'deeply involved' with the London Virginia Company, which sought to establish colonies in North America.
