The GoGoGorillas! that spent the summer dotted around Norwich go under the hammer tonight at an auction and you can follow the auction live on this site.

The auction, hosted by Jake Humphrey and run by auctioneers TW Gaze, can be followed live here

The hope is the gorillas will raise a huge amount of funds for children's charity Break, which organised the GoGoGorillas! trail with Wild in Art, and also the Born Free Foundation.

GoGoGorillas! project manager Martin Green said thousands of people had turned out to say goodbye to the gorillas at The Forum over the last few days and had been snapping up GoGoGorillas! souvenirs including playing cards, ceramics, t-shirts and auction guides, and that tonight's auction looked set to be a 'bumper night.'

He said: 'It's been really busy over the last few days and there has been lots of interest from people wanting to bid for the gorillas. Some of the unexpected gorillas have got some quite surprising bids too. The auction should be a bumper night.'

• Tonight's GoGoGorillas! auction at The Forum is a ticket only event. Bidding starts at 8pm and you can follow the auction live at www.eveningnews24.co.uk/auction
