The ancient Egyptian ruler is the latest dragon to be unveiled as Norwich gears up for the GoGoDragon! trail heading for the city this summer.

The idea for King Tut enabled the smaller businesses – known as Friends of Iceni – to play their part in this charity initiative, which is looking to raise thousands of pounds for the Break charity.

Colin Jeffery, co-director of Iceni Magazine, came up with the idea and said: 'We have been looking forward to the reveal of King Tut, and are proud to be part of the GoGoDragons! 2015.

'A huge thanks to our fantastic artist Helen L Smith who has finally be able to show off her work!'
