Now's your chance to vote for your favourite design in the running to be the 'Angel of the North' for Queensferry and the landmark everyone sees when driving across the border into Wales.

The website [] shows off the designs and enables you to vote for your favourite design which includes wings stretching over the A550, three giant seed-like pods bigger than the nearby houses and half a dozen tripods resembling 'War of the Worlds'-like alien invaders striding across local fields - but that's just my interpretation.

BBC Local News explains more about the public art project, including photos of the designs.

See what you think and then share your thoughts in our Deeside mini site which could be home to the winning design if a bid for Lottery funding is successful.
