Seventies superstar, Charley the safety cat is making a comeback.

The animated feline featured in a string of public information adverts, lasting into the eighties.

He warned a generation of children about the dangers of everything from matches to drowning.

Now he is being brought back for a new generation - with help from David Walliams.
