Fourth plinth contenders unveiled

The latest art works which are battling to be exhibited on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square have been unveiled.

A Battenberg cake, a blue cockerel and an organ-shaped cashpoint are among the six works in the running for a place on the fourth plinth at Trafalgar Square.

A mountainscape, a boy on a rocking horse and a replica of Sir George White's statue embellished with charms and jewels are the others in the race.

The models are on display in St Martin in the Fields church near the square.

The winning artwork will be announced early next year and will replace Nelson's Ship in a Bottle in 2012.
