A retired artist has found the itch to create once again - in the form of the hedge in his front garden.

Will Worthington, who lives in Marsden in West Yorkshire, has created four cats out of the hedge in front of his home.

The retired artist says he has had a lifelong interest in cats and decided to continue his passion for creativity and his feline friends into retirement.

"I like seeing people stopping and smiling at them as they pass" he said.

Bolton-born Will previously lived in Scotland before moving to West Yorkshire.

"I've owned many cats over the years, but don't currently own one," he added.
