Controversial artwork gets Kelso talking

If you've been to the Border town of Kelso in the past week, you will have noticed the huge rock that has appeared in the town square.

The 19 tonne lump of basalt will be carved with local place names.

Called the Kelsae Stane, it's the winning design of a £40,000 art project and, like most pieces of public art, it's certainly a talking point.
