With families being asked to stay at home for the foreseeable, performers in Hull are trying to raise spirits by bringing their unusual acts to people's living rooms via the internet.

That's seen the likes of Gold Man - who's a living statue often seen posing on the city's shopping streets - broadcast his statuesque act to thousands online at a safe social distance.

It's all part of a series of shows staged by the Back To Ours arts project - which are bringing smiles and familiar faces to those staying at home.
