It took two cranes to lift this 30ft (10m) high structure, called Swirl, into position at Baltic Place on the Gateshead quayside today.

The sculpture is made up of polished stainless steel and was was designed by North East sculptor Colin Rose. The work was commissioned by Robertson Group and City and Northern, the developers of a £30m office development, next to the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.
