London 2012: Weymouth Olympic deckchairs go on display
Five hundred deckchairs, created for spectators of the Olympic sailing events at Weymouth and Portland have been put up.
The images for the chairs' fabric were designed by 400 local residents as part of an Arts Council project.
Three artists worked with the local community to create designs based on the Jurassic Coast, seaside activities and Weymouth's Georgian history.
Arts Council's Phil Gibby said they had created "something fun and special".
Weymouth and Portland is the venue for the Olympic and Paralympic sailing events, with thousands expected to watch the competitions on big screens on the beach.

Following workshops and activities with local schools, 150 designs were chosen to be printed in three different colours.
Lyn Kirkland, 51, from Portland said: "I am thrilled that my work will be available for people to see and enjoy along the seafront and will be part of the Olympic legacy. I can't wait to show my family and friends my designs."
The deckchairs went on display at the Weymouth Pavilion end of beach earlier.
Members of the public will be able to hire them throughout the summer from Saturday.
