More than 200 hearts painted on Bristol's Queen Square

WATCH: The new way to sit in the heart of Bristol

Hundreds of individual hearts have been painted on a popular green space in Bristol to encourage people to visit the city and support businesses while staying safe.

Painted by a group of artists from Upfest, Europe's largest live street art and graffiti festival, the 224 hearts on Queen Square are spaced at least two metres apart so people can sit in their 'bubble' and enjoy the city.

It is hoped the initiative, called 'Bristol Together', will bring people back to Bristol as businesses begin to reopen.

College Green and Castle Park will also be transformed.
