Leicestershire artist crochets lions for 2012 Olympics


The work of a Leicestershire woman will enter the record books when it takes pride of place during the London 2012 Olympics.

Shauna Richardson from Stoughton has been preparing to crochet the last of three giant lion sculptures, which will tour the East Midlands before going on display in the capital during the games.

BBC Leicester's Carol Hinds met the artist at work.
