Artist Lucy Sparrow's felt corner shop open for business

Lucy Sparrow has just opened a corner shop in east London.

But look closely at her stock and you'll see things are not quite what they seem - everything is made of felt.

The Cornershop is actually an art installation, and it took Lucy and her assistant seven months to create the 4,000 items on display.

Everything is for sale, but not at corner shop prices - a pint of milk for example costs £20.

Lucy showed BBC News around.
