Three sculptures that will be part of an art trail celebrating Nottinghamshire legend Robin Hood have been unveiled.

The Hoodwinked trail will be a modern-day take on the traditional tales of Robin Hood and will run next summer.

The sculptures will all be robins, each with a different design.

Robin Hood wearing his traditional costume, a design celebrating India and Pakistan's independence and a blank sculpture have been revealed.

The traditional Robin Hood costume sculpture was painted by Manchester artist Jodie Silverman, who has created designs for sculpture trails up and down the country.
