Dozens of Great North Snowdog sculptures sell for almost £260,000 at auction.

Dozens of sculptures have sold for almost £260,000 at auction.

A total of 64 snowdogs, each with a unique design and based on a character from the animated film The Snowman and the Snowdog, were created earlier this year and displayed on a public art trail across Tyne and Wear.

The trail closed last month and the sculptures have been sold at the Sage Gateshead.

The £259,200 raised will go to St Oswald's Hospice in Newcastle.
