Artworks by Damien Hirst have been springing up across Leeds ahead of a major exhibition.

Yorkshire Sculpture International features work by 18 international artists from 13 countries and begins on Saturday 22 June.

Hirst grew up in Leeds, went to school in the city and studied at Leeds College of Art in the early 1980s.

Two of his works are being displayed in the city centre. Other works will go on show at the city's art gallery and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield.
