Giant pufferfish tower sparks debate in China
A giant Chinese viewing tower, built in the shape of a giant pufferfish, has sparked debate on Chinese social media.
The monument, erected for a horticultural exhibition, measures 90 metres from nose to tail- which is around the same height as the Statue of Liberty.
But at a cost of approximately £7m ($11.4m), many have criticised it for being an example of extravagant state spending.
