Artist prepares for Paralympics after Olympic 'pebble medal' haul

  • Video report by Andy Dickenson

Painting pebbles has become a bit of a craze during lockdown - a hobby imported from America, brightening our streets with messages of hope, and solidarity with the NHS.

However, Niki Munday, from Shoreham in Sussex, has elevated the past-time to a new gold standard by creating stones to reflect each of the medals Great Britain won in the Olympic Games.

Once completed, Niki hides her pebbles in beaches and parks, in the hope that people will find them and post their discoveries on social media.

She has photos returning from as far afield as Australia and Canada.

With the Paralympics now upon us, Niki's in training to repeat her feat for a new swathe of sporting heroes bringing us all out of rockier times.
