The final barge with material for Brighton's new i360 attraction has arrived from the Netherlands.

The vessel is carrying the final eleven steel cans to complete the structure, which has reached a height of 28 metres.

The viewing tower is set to be completed by September - and opens to the public next year.

A row has broken out about the future of two tourist attractions on Brighton seafront.

The i360 observation tower is due to open next summer. But the owners of the Brighton Wheel have applied for permission to stay another five years too. They say there's room for both.

But the team behind the i360 say it's unfair competition
