A red dragon sculpture that once guarded Tesco Roundabout in Wrexham is now up for auction and looking for a new home.

Morag was once a popular sight in Wrexham after she was installed on the roundabout in 2012, where remained for over six years.

Morag is around 2.9 metres, or 9ft 6in tall, but when placed on a pedestal she is about 4.4 metres/ 14ft 6in tall. She also has a wingspan of 2.2 metres, or over 7ft.
