Timmy Mallett repaints ruined gorilla


TV presenter Timmy Mallett is repainting a gorilla sculpture which was destroyed in a fire in Bristol.

The animal was part of a city-wide public art display celebrating Bristol Zoo's 175th anniversary.

But the gorilla which Mr Mallett decorated was destroyed by vandals in a fire during the week.

He said he wanted the gorilla, named Kingdom, to be a "phoenix rising from the flames".
