An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman said: "This is the latest in the series of Cornhill events designed to attract more people into the town centre and to provide a focus of fun for all the family."

Warble Entertainment, who are experts in living statues, describe them as "unbelievably realistic", and say people have often been taken in and convinced they are statues... until they move.
