The wait is finally over for the new episode of Zey the Mouse, a stop motion animation about a family of mice living in the countryside.
Entitled 'Clara's Birthday' the new episode follows West Norfolk's much-loved rodent Zey and his pals on their adventure to London.
Animator Ian Harding, from King's Lynn, spent more than a year on the fourth episode which includes new characters Mr Scotty the dog, PC Bulldog and Claws the crocodile.
Since 2012, Mr Harding posts a new episode on his YouTube channel every summer after spending nine to 10 months creating the characters from Fimo modelling clay in his home studio. Previous episodes have been viewed more than 8,000 times.
Each individual character takes five hours to make and is dressed in hand-stitched clothing, which reflects their personalities.
