4 July 2011 Last updated at 23:10 BST

A giant star has been selected as the winning design for a landmark sculpture on the Scotland-England border.

Cecil Balmond's Star of Caledonia was chosen by the judges for the Border Crossing project at Gretna.

Panelist and Creative Scotland chief executive Andrew Dixon said the design was "rooted in Scotland's scientific contribution to the world".

The idea will now be developed throughout the summer before a planning application is submitted.
