One of Nottingham's most famous landmarks is going to be copied and presented as a gift to a city in China.

The Robin Hood Statue will be recast and flown to Nottingham's twin city of Ningbo.

The seven foot bronze statue by the late artist and sculptor James Woodford, will take a week to recast.

His son James has backed the idea.

"The family is delighted that one of my father's most iconic works is to be perpetuated in this way and I am sure my father would have been very pleased."

– James Woodford, son of artist
