A 70ft high tower celebrating the global struggle for social and economic justice is to be built at the entrance to a union-run section of this year's Glastonbury Festival.
Work got underway at the weekend on the giant steel structure, which has been designed by festival organiser Michael Eavis and Cornwall-based artists Graham Jobbins and Kurt Jackson.
"I came up with the idea of having 12 large figures cut out of steel plate revolving on a big cylinder pulling a rope which should indicate the need for all people around the world to work and pull together," said Mr Eavis.
