London 2012: Crocheted lions unveiled as part of Cultural Olympiad

Three giant crocheted lions are the latest artwork to be unveiled as part of the Cultural Olympiad.

Shauna Richardson was one of 12 artists to receive around £500,000 from Arts Council England to create a piece of work to celebrate the Olympics.

David Sillito visited the 30ft (9m) lions which took 18 months to crochet with 36 miles of wool.
