A Bristol artist has announced plans to turn Bristol's Park Street into a water slide for a day as part of the city's traffic free "Make Sunday Special" initiative.

Luke Jerram says his project has been given the go-ahead by the City Council on Sunday 4th May this year. It will involve a 90 metre plastic slide from the top of Park Street which members of the public will be able to use free of charge.

For the project to go ahead, Luke needs to raise more than £5,000 from public donations.
