The UK's largest cast bronze sculpture has arrived in Plymouth after being transported by boat across the Plymouth Sound.

'Messenger' is a seven metre high, and nearly 10tonne, sculpture of a young actor in mid performance.

It has caused a lot of controversy within the city, we spoke to people back in 2017, when many described the concept as 'bizarre'.

But it's hoped the sculpture will be as nationally recognised as the Angel of the North.

It has taken artist Joseph Miller nearly three years to make

Created by artist Joseph Miller, the sculpture 'embodies the energy and creativity at the heart of the Theatre Royal and cultural life in Plymouth'.

It has taken Joseph nearly three years to make and cost £450,000.

It will be officially unveiled on Friday (March 22) where it will mark the end of a multi-million pound regeneration project at the Theatre Royal.
