Famous film characters including Yoda and Gollum have taken over a beach as an annual sand sculpture gets under way.

The Star Wars guru, the Lord of the Rings villain, Batman, King Kong, and troubled cabbie Travis Bickle from the Robert De Niro cult film Taxi Driver are gracing Weston-super-Mare beach in Somerset.

Other idols of Hollywood featuring in the Sand Sculpture Festival include ET and film director Alfred Hitchcock.
