As part of the campaign to stop Henry Moore's Draped Seated Woman, 1957-58 (or Old Flo as she is known) being sold off by a London council, artist Bob and Roberta Smith led a group hug of a Henry Moore sculpture at Leeds City Art Gallery.

In this short film you can join in the hug from the comfort of your desk, and listen to Old Flo as she gives her message to the Mayor of Tower Hamlets.
