Fictional Norwich radio DJ and Alpha Papa star Alan Partridge has inspired a 30-piece art exhibition in the city.

Much of the artwork in the Moosey Art Gallery sold out with hours of going on display.

Actor Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge character was born in King's Lynn but grew up in Norwich and considers the city home.

More than 300 people attended the launch. Partridge would have "lapped up the attention", the gallery said.
