A public arts trail featuring seventy Shaun the Sheep sculptures is launching in Bristol today.

The statues will be dotted around key landmarks across the city to raise money for Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

Artists, designers and businesses such as DreamWorks, Thunderbirds and Bagpuss creator Peter Firmin have decorated the sculptures.

It's hoped the trail, named Shaun in the City, will be as popular as the Gromit Unleashed version two years ago.

There's still a few weeks to go until Aardman's Shaun in the City trail hits Bristol, but two of the Shaun sculptures have now arrived in the city.

Fab-ewe-lous and Bee-dazzled will be based at the Mall in Cribbs Causeway until the end of August, when they'll be auctioned off to help raise money for the Bristol Children's Hospital.
