VIDEO: Children take part in urban art at Chapelfield, Norwich

Children got colourful and creative on Saturday when they took part in an art event in Norwich.

Urban Canvas was held on Chapelfield Plain on Saturday and youngsters created a three metre wide celestial sun on the ground.

Spokesman for Chapelfield, Sheridan Smith, said: 'We encouraged shoppers of all ages to get involved. We also did some photography so we can make a one minute video of all the photographs showing how the sun developed during the day. Everyone worked really hard.

'The rain changed the nature of the piece.'

The event was part of a series of free summer entertainment for youngsters.
