Tony Hart Tribute

Dozens of models of Morph - a regular co-host with Tony Hart for many years - cover the ground outside the Tate Modern museum in London, as fans paid tribute to their hero. The Telegraph reports:

"Nearly 200 of the small orange models drew a large crowd of human onlookers at the Tate Modern gallery on London's South Bank. Each model was formed in the shape of children's television favourite Morph. The event was organised on social networking website Facebook by a group of friends who wanted to remember Mr Hart, who died earlier this year. His constant companion on his long-running television show inspired group members to some unusual interpretations of the well-known figure. One Morph was wearing a bikini, another sported wings and a third was dressed as a reggae rap star. Members of Mr Hart's family came to see the rows upon rows of little Morphs and judge a competition on the best effort."

Never mind Wallace and Gromit or Creature Comforts - Morph is the Man!
