Liverpool crowds greet giant puppets

Thousands of people have lined Liverpool's streets to welcome three giant marionettes, which will tell the story of the city during World War One.

A grandma giant set off in search for a her giant granddaughter and giant pet dog Xolo on Friday morning.

The huge figures began the Memories of August 1914 commemoration, and will visit many of the city's landmarks before they sail away on the River Mersey on Sunday.
