Nature lovers are being urged to make the most of an international photography show in Wolverhampton.

Council bosses have urged locals to avoid an expensive trip to London and experience the touring exhibition of 100 photos right here in the Black Country.

The World Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition has already attracted hundreds of visitors to the city's art gallery to see the stunning wildlife pictures.

It is the second year Wolverhampton Art Gallery has hosted the show, which last year won the thumbs up from visitors, with comments from visitors including: 'A much nicer space than London, it's beautifully curated – I like the atmosphere soundtrack'.

City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, Councillor John Reynolds, said: “Last year the show attracted thousands of visitors and we had such positive feedback that it was decided to host it again this year.

“These photographs are stunning. I hope people will make the most of the fact they are here in Wolverhampton, meaning there is no need for an expensive trip to London to see a world-class exhibition.”

The Natural History Museum's 52nd World Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition runs until October 1 at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

Gallery bosses say this year’s show is great value for money with prices £4 for adults, £2 children and family tickets £10 (two adults and two children) and can be bought from
