Three steel dinosaurs are among works which will be displayed in the City of London this summer as part of an exhibition of sculpture.

Jake and Dinos Chapman's dinosaurs will be joined by works by Antony Gormley and Robert Indiana in the Sculpture in the City 2013 show.

The 13ft (4m) Chapman dinosaurs, known as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly will stand at the base of the Gherkin.

The free outdoor exhibition will launch on 20 June.

Meanwhile, Gormley's leaning human figure sculptures, known as Parallel Field, will surprise passers by on the pavement of St Mary Axe alongside Aviva Square.

John Scott, chairman of the City of London Corporation's arts advisory board said: "We're delighted to bring such fantastic sculptures to the streets and people of the City with the help of our partners from the worlds of both business and art.

"Art is an essential part of vitality of the City of London, a draw for workers and visitors alike, a major contributing factor in our economic vibrancy and the kernel of the cultural brio of the Square Mile."
