VIDEO: And where's Humphrey the Camel?

He used to stand proudly in fields of green. Now he's got a housing estate as a background.

In a field near Bridgwater, the M5 'Willowman' has been an attraction for high-speed motorists for more than 20 years.  Over the years, Sedgemoor District Council's spent more than £100,000 touching him up.

Willowman's owner and creator Serena de la Hay has tried to raise money for repairs, but without success.

Could this be end for WIlloman? And where's Humphrey the Camel? This short BBC Spotlight report explains.
