A new 44-metre big wheel is being put up in a seaside town.

The attraction, which will be on Worthing seafront between Worthing Pier and the lido until November, will begin to be put up from Tuesday.

Worthing Borough Council said it should be up and running by next week.

A spokesman for the council said: "At a height of 44 metres, the electric white wheel with red open-air 'gondolas' will allow users to see up to 10 miles in all directions.

"The attraction will be based between Worthing Pier and the lido on the promenade until it leaves our seaside town in November.

"Access to the promenade may be temporarily affected whilst vehicles deliver the structure this week. However, it will remain open as usual outside of these times.

"We hope you’re looking forward to the return of a wheel on our coastline."

The wheel will be open seven days a week all summer.
