The Margate Wickerman

What's this? We'll have no trouble here. This is a local wickerman made from local rubbish. (Zut! Channel 4 has removed the video... time for a quick link change...) The BBC reports sighting a Waste Man in Royston Vasey Margate:

Thousands of people have looked on while an 82ft-high (25m) sculpture of a man built out of rubbish was burned to the ground. The Waste Man, designed by Angel of the North creator Antony Gormley, was the climax to a day of live public performances in Margate, Kent. Teams of volunteers spent two months collecting waste materials and packing them into the sculpture's framework.

Unregulated video imagery here.
