New time lapse footage shows the intricate construction of the ArcelorMittal Orbit on the Olympic Park.

Situated between the Olympic Stadium and the Aquatics Centre, it will give visitors a view of the entire Olympic Park.

Visitors will be able to take a trip up the 376ft (114.5m) structure in a lift and will have the option of walking down the spiralling staircase.

It was designed by award-winning artist Anish Kapoor and is expected to be completed by March 2012.
