About 200 brightly coloured Easter eggs will appear across London next week.

The fibreglass eggs will be placed across the city for the Faberge Big Egg Hunt, which starts on Tuesday.

Egg-hunters have until 3 April, to find as many as they can. The event will raise money for Elephant Family and Action for Children charities.

The 2ft 6in (74cm) eggs have unique designs, with fashion designer Zandra Rhodes and film director Sir Ridley Scott among the creators.
