Managers at offices in a seaside town in Kent have installed a slide to take workers from one floor to another in just three seconds.

The 20ft-long stainless steel feature was added to create a sense of fun for staff at the Workshop offices in Folkestone.

The part-tubular slide is said to add to the "Google-esque" feel of the offices - and even has a GoPro camera inside it taking pictures as people whizz down from the fifth to the fourth floor.

For those of an unadventurous disposition, the office still has conventional stairs and a lift.

Office manager James Avery, said: "Everyone has a go when they come in, but people have become accustomed to it now. No-one looks up, it's just the norm.

We have noticed the slide being used for other purposes, such as sending down post, and even the odd bag of sugar."
