In pictures: Kelpies construction work completed

Published
image captionConstruction work on the world's largest pair of equine sculptures has been completed. Angela Finlay, who works for Scottish Canals, took this picture of them.
image captionThe Kelpies, costing £5m, have been installed near Falkirk. Alan Styles, who worked on the project, captured this view from 41m (135ft) in the air on a cherry picker.
image captionThe 30m (100ft) structures are part of the £43m Helix redevelopment project between Falkirk and Grangemouth in central Scotland.
image captionAn official topping-out ceremony is being held on Wednesday 27 November. This picture was taken by Ben Williams, who works with The Helix team in Falkirk.
image captionThe Kelpies' heads were galvanised before their installation. The art work was created by sculptor Andy Scott.
image captionThe Helix project was funded by The Big Lottery Fund, Falkirk Council and Scottish Canals.
image captionThe Kelpies are one of the UK's tallest pieces of public art. The Clydesdale horses they are modelled on are to attend the official completion ceremony.
image captionThe Kelpies will be visible from the M9 motorway, as well as the nearby canal, and could be seen by millions of people each year.
