After Gromit, comes Shaun the Sheep

Organisers of Gromit Unleashed say nearly 1.2 million people visited the trail and exhibition this year, contributing £120 million to the Bristol economy.

According to their research, just over half the visitors were from Bristol, two per cent from abroad, and the rest from other parts of the UK.

And organisers have revealed they are working on a new idea for 2015 involving another Aardman Animations character, Shaun the Sheep.

Last week the auction of the Gromit statues raised £2.3 million for Bristol Children's Hospital.
