Three elephant sculptures which were removed from Southend's new art-trail after  damage have returned to the city's streets after "some TLC".

The Herd In The City trail includes 46 large elephant sculptures and 72 baby elephants across the streets of Southend, Shoebury and Leigh.

Trail organisers noticed the two elephants named Nelly and Waterline were "unstable" on Saturday. Marina was also later removed.

A spokesman for Herd In The City said at the time they were "devastated" that the elephants had to leave the trail temporarily to be fixed.

However, all three have returned to their dedicated spots in the trail today.

Nelly can be found outside The Royals Shopping Centre on Pier Hill, Waterline in the High Street by the Metro Bank and Marina outside The Castle Pub.

Organisers have urged trail-goers to be gentle and refrain from climbing on the sculptures, or swinging on them.

A spokesman said: "If you are going to follow the herd this weekend, please check our pinned post before making a special trip for a specific elephant, as some may have packed their trunk and been temporarily removed for some TLC.

"Our sculptures are friendly creatures who like being hugged and having their photos taken. However, they need to be treated with respect, and we ask all of our trail-goers to be gentle and refrain from climbing or swinging on them."
