Ian Rankin on the winning Star of Caledonia landmark

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.

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

The design is "futuristic" and "quite revolutionary", said Scottish novelist Ian Rankin, after inspecting the design.
