Whipsnade's giant chalk lion gets makeover

The largest hill figure in England has received a major makeover.

A lion overlooking the Dunstable Downs in Bedfordshire was restored using 800 tonnes of unwanted chalk, donated by a local resident.

It was created in 1933 but had become faded, and covered in weeds. The restoration took six months to complete.
