Birmingham owls were a smash hoot but bears are bigger

Visitors to Birmingham might remember 2015's Big Hoot - owl sculptures dotted around the city in a tourist trail that raised money for charity when the statues were auctioned.

In 2017, the animals return, but this time in the form of bears adorned with various artists' individual flair.

From 10 July, more than 200 bears will form a new tourist trail around the city in the hope of raising money for Birmingham Children's Hospital.
