Naked woman sculpture legacy for coal mining

A huge reclining naked woman sculpted into the Northumberland landscape, is to be officially declared complete by the Princess Royal.

At 1,300ft (396m) long Northumberlandia, at Cramlington, is the world's largest human form sculpted into the landscape.

It took two years to construct and was formed as a lasting legacy in recompense for the disruption caused by coal extraction at what was the largest mine of its kind in England.

Tim Muffett reports.
