The View Put The Boot In

Newlywed KT Tunstall, right, Dundee indie boys The View and rockers The Fratellis hand-decorated the special boots at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

And they are going under the hammer later this month as part of an eBay auction.

The unique footwear will raise money for Water Aid, which provides clean water, sanitation and hygiene education in Africa and other parts of the developing world.

The Scots are part of a galaxy of stars taking part, including supermodel Kate Moss, Oasis star Noel Gallagher and hip hop legend Jay-Z.

But it was KT's boots, left, that were singled out for special praise because of their stunning design.

Naomi Irving, corporate development manager at Water Aid, said: "We are really excited about the Water Aid Celebrity Boot auction on eBay.

"We're so grateful to all the celebrities involved who have signed a pair of Hunter for Water Aid wellies, including KT Tunstall, The Fratellis and Noel Gallagher.

"KT's in particular are simply stunning, and she spent a lot of time and effort making them look so gorgeous.

"The boots decorated by The View look amazing as well, and the graffiti design is really different."

The eBay auction begins next Thursday, with all profits going towards the project.
