Frozen Stiff: The Chilly Willy Getting the Cold Shoulder

Kathryn Quinn

The snow may have melted away in Britain, but other parts of Europe are still clearly frozen stiff.

This head-turning ice sculpture in Lodz, Poland, featuring a two metre high manhood has been blamed for an increase in traffic accidents since it sprung up overnight.

"We saw people building snowmen and we thought that was boring so we thought we'd do something a bit more fun," one of the sculpture's creators - a gang of teenage boys - told local media.

But police have given the saucy sculpture a frosty reception.

"We've seen a rise in accidents because drivers slow down to stare and take photos and crash into each other," said a police spokesman.

"At least with the warmer temperatures it is slowly shrinking," they added.
