GRAPPENHALL based artists have been selected to display their 5ft Gromit on a ship that sails around Bristol.

Neil and Fiona Osborne are taking part in the Gromit Unleashed project organised by Ardman Animations, the company that produced Wallace and Gromit.

The project is currently displaying 80 Gromits, around Bristol city centre until September 8.

After entering five different sculptures one of the couple’s designs was chosen out of hundreds of other submissions from artists across the country.

The winning design was a giant Gromit which is painted in the style of an antique globe complete with sea monsters, ships and giant fish.
