Chester bust made to 'make Queen proud'


An artist who created a five-foot bust of the Queen for Chester's Diamond Jubilee celebrations said he wanted to make her "proud" with his creation.

Nick Elphick said it had been "scary" creating the art work because he wanted to "do her justice for the pride of the country".

However, he said it had also been "extremely joyful to be able to come in and work on this every day".

The bust will be shown in the centre of Chester as part of the city's Jubilee celebrations in 2012 and 60 copies will be made to display in the surrounding area.
