London 2012: Chatsworth House displays woolly lions


Three giant woolly lions have gone on display at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

Artist Shauna Richardson, from Leicestershire, has spent two years crocheting the 9m (29ft) figures using 36 miles (57km) of Swaledale wool from the Derbyshire Dales.

The lions will stay at Chatsworth House until 10 June and will then tour the East Midlands before being displayed at London's Natural History Museum.
