A giant beach ball has landed on a rooftop on a busy Finsbury junction.

The 10 metre wide installation, made by artist Morag Myerscough, was commissioned to brighten up Old Street roundabout by developers Derwent London.

The company organised the oversized sphere, which be around for the next couple of months, to celebrate their new White Collar Factory building which will be completed by 2016.

A spokesman for the Derwent said: “it can be quite a drab roundabout, but it’s such and exciting growth area and we wanted to do something to reflect that.

“We really pleased to work with Morag and she’s created something really distinctive.”
