Cafe owner Peter Allinson is definitely not pulling the wool over anyone's eyes with his replica of the Royal Pavilion.

The 41-year-old spent six months on and off knitting his own version of the iconic Brighton landmark which he is displaying in the window of Temptation Cafe, in Gardner Street, Brighton.

Mr Allinson, who was taught to knit by his mother as a child, made the display, complete with felt seagulls, for Brighton Festival.

The display, called The Silent Seagulls, follows on from last year's model of the Palace Pier and the legwarmers he made for Max Miller The café is also full of Mr Allinson's knitted tea cosies which always cause a stir when customers receive them.

He said: “This is a great way to make people in Brighton smile and to bring people to our wonderful North Laine.”
