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.
