Thousands of Bristolians plan to celebrate the start of summer with a giant water fight in Millennium Square tonight.

The Bristol Smile Instigation Collective plans to decorate the fountains at the square with recycled flowers, before welcoming the more than 3,000 people who have signed up to brandish their water pistols, balloons and gleeful abandon.

The fountain decorating begins at 7pm, with the water fight itself starting at half past.

The first five Shaun the Sheep sculptures are on display around Bristol today ahead of the 'Shaun in the City' trail, which begins in July.

70 of the statues will be on show across the city this summer but for now fans have to make do with a preview.

Scores of the sculptures are on display in London - and the trail has been so successful that it has been extended for a further week.

Possible Banksy appears in Bristol

Could this graffiti in Bedminster be a Banksy? Credit: Gill Bees-Garland

One of our viewers spotted this piece of graffiti tucked away on the wall by Lidl on her way into Bedminster today (12 May).

We are wondering if it is an actual Banksy. It features one of the Bristol artist's trademark mouse stencils.

If the work is authentic, it usually appears on Banksy's website - we're keeping our eyes peeled.

A young man from Somerset will head off on an extraordinary challenge tomorrow.

Ed Pratt aims to ride round the world on a unicycle - something that's never been done before.

He's raising money for the School in a Bag charity which provides equipment for vulnerable children around the world. It could take two years to complete.

Ed says: "It's very do-able. You just get up, you cycle, you sleep and you just repeat that day after day. It's just doing it day after day is definitely going to be tough but I reckon I'll get into it and it'll work."
