SCULPTURES made of shopping trolleys retrieved from rivers will be unveiled in Huntingdon tomorrow (Thursday).

Artist Ptolemy Elrington has been commissioned by Anglian Water and has so far created a vole, frog and a dragonfly with a 6ft wingspan.

These are the first of 10 sculptures which will tour the East of England on a roadshow travelling to Peterborough, Cambridge, Lincoln, Norwich, Colchester and Ipswich.

The structures will be used to head an educational campaign to invite people to adopt a stretch of local river.
