Follow us for live updates from Ipswich Corn Exchange where the 56 large Elmer statues which have drawn crowds from across the world to Ipswich this summer are being sold at auction.

The auction is expected to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for St Elizabeth Hospice, which staged the trail between June and September.

Fans of the colourful creations will be bidding for their favourite designs in the hope of securing a legacy from the public art event.
