Celebration of Philip Larkin's work planned for Hull


Philip Larkin is considered one of the 20th century's greatest poets.

For his last 30 years he lived and worked in Hull and fans of his poetry think that more should be done to celebrate his work.

Starting this summer, there will be six months of Larkin inspired events in Hull including a permanent statue and a Philip Larkin tourist trail.

Tim Muffett reports.
