A collection of giant decorative eggs that have been on display across London since February, have now been gathered together in Covent Garden.

It comes as organisers of the Faberge Big Egg Hunt celebrate the recovery of an Olympic themed egg, which had been stolen from its plinth last month.

It was the third egg to disappear from the collection of 209 scattered across the capital as part of a fundraising initiative by charities Action for Children and Elephant Family.

A giant Easter egg, which was one of three stolen from the streets of London, has been recovered.

The 'our team' Olympic tribute egg was one of 209 giant decorative eggs on display in London as part of the Faberge Big Egg Hunt - a competition organised as a fundraiser for two charities.

Three of the eggs had been stolen from their plinths in different parts of London but they have now all been returned.

The Olympic tribute egg is now being repaired.
