Giant puppets to return, says Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson

The Giants are set to return to Liverpool, the city's mayor has said.

Tens of thousands of people turned out to watch the giant puppets parade through the city's streets in 2014.

The event culminated in a spectacular display to commemorate the the centenary of the outbreak of World War One.

Mayor Joe Anderson said the 25ft (7.5m) tall marionettes would return in 2018 as part of a year-long cultural programme to mark 10 years since Liverpool was Europe's Capital of Culture.
