Three giant crocheted lions are the latest artwork to be unveiled as part of the Cultural Olympiad.

Shauna Richardson was one of 12 artists to receive around £500,000 from Arts Council England to create a piece of work to celebrate the Olympics.

David Sillito visited the 30ft (9m) lions which took 18 months to crochet with 36 miles of wool.
