A Spanish fresco that made headlines around the world after its restoration was botched by an elderly parishioner has had a change in fortune.

Ecce Homo earned the nickname 'Monkey Christ' after Cecilia Gimenez attempted to restore it.

Now officials say more than 40,000 people have come to visit it - raising more than 50,000 euros (£43,000) for charity.
