    Blue pillars of varying heights with honeycomb shapes on top.

    Alien Sex Capsule, by British artist John Walter, opens at Artlink on Princes Avenue on Friday 18 August and is described as a "multi-media, multi-sensory and immersive show".

    It involves paintings, sculpture and video and considers the complex subject of sexual health today.

    Swirls of bright colours with honey comb images in the background.

    It's a cut-down version of Walter's 2015 exhibition Alien Sex Club which was shown in London and Liverpool.

    Martin Green, Director of Hull 2017, says: "The interactive exhibition uses colour and humour to tackle the hugely important, but sometimes uncomfortable subject of sexual health and open the topic up to discussion among a wide audience."

  14. Village's smashed-up phone box restored to former glory

    This is what the phone box in the East Yorkshire village of Atwick looked like after a car hit it in May:

    The damaged village phone box.

    But after a campaign by people living in the village to save it, BT has restored the traditional red phone box to its former glory:

    The new red phone box in the village square.

    BT, who say they usually no longer replace phone boxes due to their lack of use, have made an exception due to the passion shown by local residents.

    Local Conservative MP Graham Stuart has praised the telecoms firm for going against its usual policy.

    He says: "They see how important the red phone box is to this beautiful village, have shown admirable flexibility in their policy, and it is a really human response from a large company."

    And Mike Crowther, chairman of Atwick Parish Council, says: "The phone box was an important part of the village both visually and, equally significantly, as a vital resource."
