Penis graffiti wins art prize in Russia

Voina, the radical art group behind that giant penis drawing on that drawbridge in Russia, have won a major prize for their efforts.
The group painted the 220ft-long phallus on St Petersburg's Liteiny Bridge in protest at heightened security in the city ahead of June's International Economic Forum.
As you can see in the video below, the idea is that the penis rises, erection-like, when the bridge is raised to let traffic through.
The drawbridge happens to be opposite the headquarters of the FSB security service - one of St Petersburg's tourist attractions.
