More than 80 giant statues of Wallace's canine companion Gromit which have been on display at an exhibition in Bristol are due to be auctioned later.

Each statue of the Oscar-winning star has been decorated by a top artist, illustrator, designer or celebrity - from Sir Quentin Blake and Gerald Scarfe to One Direction's Zayn Malik and the team at the Beano.

Money raised will go to Bristol Children's Hospital.

Auctioneer Tim Wonnacott says the statues could sell for about £10,000 each.

Jon Kay reports.
