SCULPTOR Paul Bainbridge is opening his studio and inviting people to watch him work on his latest piece.

Paul is currently working on a sculpture of Steve Parrish, a former motorbike racer who now co-presents the BBC's coverage of Moto GP.

"I met Steve when I spent a weekend watching the Moto GP at Donnington Park," said Paul.

"As part of the package he was one of our dinner guests, and I got chatting to him and asked if he would mind me doing a portrait."

Steve, who is based in Croydon, visited Paul recently to check on his progress.

Paul said: "He came up here and was quite pleased with what I've been doing.
