Homeless sculptor Dr Geebers creates F1 car in Skegness

A homeless sculptor has been in Skegness on the latest leg of his two year coastal walk around the UK.

George, more widely known as Dr Geebers, took up the challenge of creating artwork from pebbles on Britain's beaches because of a "drunken bet" on the street in Brighton.

According to the out of work artist the challenge has offered him a new way of life.

His past creations have included: a dragon sculpture, a steamboat and now in Skegness a racing car.

He plans to write a novel when he has completed his journey to raise money for other homeless people.
