Dozens of giant sculptures of Gromit, Aardman's famous animated dog, arrived in Bristol today. They'll be painted and put on display in July, before being sold off to raise money for the Childrens' Hospital.
Famous illustrators such as Raymond Briggs, who created The Snowman, and The Gruffalo's Axel Scheffler will be among those painting unique designs.
