People wanting to go down a giant water slide in Bristol next month have just five days to register.

The idea for the 90 metre park and slide in Park Street comes from artist Luke Jerram.

Thousands of people from across the world want to take part but, because of safety concerns, only hundreds will be able to. Their names will be picked at random from those who've signed up.

The event is planned for May 4th and will be presented as part of Bristol City Council’s ‘Make Sundays Special’ programme.
