Practising for the Park and Slide

A practice run has taken place for the so-called "Park and Slide" when people will get the chance to go on a giant water slide in Park Street in Bristol.

Luke Jerram, the artist behind the idea, and his team were out early in St George's Park, out of sight from prying eyes and people wanting to have a go too.

He says the trial was a success and that everyone was happy, especially the council as it will be part of its "Make Sundays Special" programme.
