A giant observation wheel has opened to the public in Middlesbrough.
The Wheel - the only one of its kind in the north east of England - has been installed in the town's Centre Square and will remain for several months.
The 40m-high (130ft) wheel has 30 glass-sided and climate-controlled observation pods, each of which can carry up to eight people.
The attraction has created about 20 jobs. Rides lasting 12 minutes cost £5 for adults and £3 for children.
