Buses in Hull are to display extracts of poems by the late Philip Larkin as part of a programme of events to celebrate his life.

The poems will feature on panels in several buses in the city and one vehicle has been officially named after him.

The 25-week programme to honour Larkin, who lived in Hull for 30 years before his death in 1985, started in June.

Events include celebrations, public artworks and performances.

The programme runs until 2 December, the 25th anniversary of Larkin's death, when a statue of the poet will be unveiled at the city's Paragon Interchange.
