First glimpse at famous Gromit unleashed designs

Four well-known artists and designers have hand-painted Aardman's famous animated dog, Gromit.

Paul Smith and Cath Kidston are just a few of the famous names taking part in the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal. Organisers hope the sculptures will raise money for the Bristol Children's Hospital.

The sculptures are currently being kept at a secret location before being unleashed onto Bristol's streets in July.

Our reporter, Tamsin Eames, was invited to a first glimpse.
