Uri Geller spoon gorilla statue unveiled

17 May 2014 Last updated at 13:34

A huge gorilla statue made entirely of spoons for entertainer Uri Geller has been unveiled by Prince Michael of Kent.

The 12ft-high (3.6m) statue features about 40,000 spoons and has taken almost five months to build at the British Ironworks Centre in Oswestry.

The spoons have been donated from across the world, as well as local schoolchildren.

It is due to be transported to Mr Geller's home in Berkshire on 28 May.

It was hoped the statue could be transported to Berkshire by helicopter, but after safety fears, the Ironworks Centre said the TV production company behind Shipping Wars had stepped forward to help.
