One of Bristol's most famous exports finally hit the big screen at the weekend. Shaun the Sheep is Aardman Animations' most successful character - even outstripping Wallace and Gromit.

After nearly a decade of seven-minute-long TV shows, he's finally starring in his own feature-length film.

As Caron Bell reports, it's quite a journey for a sheep that was never supposed to be a star.

With just 100 days left to win your vote, both the Prime Minister and Chancellor were on the campaign trail in Somerset this afternoon

David Cameron and George Osborne called in to Somerset College in Taunton to announce details of a six point plan to boost the West's economy.

It's a substantial announcement not just about what has been done here in the south west but what has been planned to do.

The investment and expertise in cyber, making the most of the defence assets in the south west, promoting another 7,000 jobs in tourism in the south west, looking at the crucial rail building that we need to do. So these are serious thought-out and costed plans for the future, not just words on a page

– David Cameron, Prime Minister
