Olympic sculpture to be turned into giant slide - images

Planning permission has been granted to turn the Orbit sculpture at the 2012 Olympic Park into a giant slide.

The Legacy Corporation said it would install the 178m-long slide within the East London attraction by next spring.

Members of the public will be able to hit 15mph during 40-second rides on the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

The distinctive red steel tower was designed by Sir Anish Kapoor and stands 114.5m high in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
