Two people released on bail after fatal collision

Two people arrested after a suspected hit-and-run in Bristol have been released on bail.

A 39-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man, who were both arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, have been bailed until 9 September.

Last chance to see the Shauns out in the wild

Today is the final day to catch Bristol's Shaun in the City statues out in their natural habitat.

From tonight the 70 sculptures are off to pastures new - they'll be rounded up for two special exhibitions ahead of the charity auction in October, raising money for the Bristol Children's Hospital.

uses of #shaunnthecity
downloads of the Sheep Spotter app
1.5 mn

The sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money for The Grand Appeal, so Shaun's popularity could make a real difference:
