Norwich City Hall's famous lions have been covered up today as part of a charity's bid to highlight the plight of the big cats.

Lion Aid has been putting black shrouds on lion sculptures in iconic places across the UK to raise awareness of the 90pc decline in lions in the wild in just 50 years.

Norwich City Council is supporting the event, which started at 10am this morning and was attended by Norwich City Council leader Steve Morphew.
