THE artist who depicted Alan Shearer in a giant caricature which hung from the Tyne Bridge made sketches of fair-goers at the weekend.

Paul Slattery was the star guest at the annual summer fair at St Cuthbert's Hospice in Durham.

He created unique artworks featuring visitors to the event as spectators looked on.

There was also the opportunity for people to bring their antiques for valuation by experts, and other attractions included Scottish country dancing, a helium balloon launch, saxophone music, a treasure hunt and clairvoyants.

Stalls included plants, jewellery, books and crafts, and visitors tucked into cream teas, ice creams and hot dogs.
