Intrepid wolf hunters scooped an array of prizes for completing a popular Bury St Edmunds art trail.

About 2,000 people entered a competition to track down all 26 wolves, which were dotted around the town from July to November.

Twelve prizes were presented including an iPad mini, gift vouchers, a book, theatre and cinema tickets as well as the chance to dine at local eateries.

A range of artists created the wolves using different materials and the trail was organised by town centre improvement organisation OurBuryStEdmunds with members of the Town Team group.

Chief executive Mark Cordell said: “I was thrilled with the success of the Wolf Trail, which brought so many people to Bury St Edmunds.

“It was quite overwhelming to hear how much people were enjoying hunting for all the wolves and sharing pictures of their favourites on social media.

“The wolves have since been auctioned and have raised several thousand pounds between them for a variety of local charities.

“Presenting the prizes to the competition winners is a great way to end the year and reflect on what a success the Wolf Trail was.”

A number of the wolves have been left on display in the town by their new owners as a lasting legacy of the art trail.

According to legend the wolf was the beast which guarded St Edmund’s head after he was slain.
