WHEN two footballing legends visited a Northwich pub they were met by uncanny models of themselves, made entirely from balloons.

The Wow Shop, in Market Way, was invited to make balloon sculptures of Michael Owen and Viv Anderson when they came to sign autographs at The White Barn pub, in Cuddington.

The pair visited the pub after it won a competition organised by its fruit machine suppliers.

Kevin and Sharon McDermott, managers of the White Barn, said: “Michael and Viv were brilliant and it was a really fun evening for everyone who came along.

“We had a big queue for autographs but they were more than happy to get through them all and Michael even found the time to have a kick about in the garden with the kids.

“Everyone had a great night.”
