A 33ft (10m) tall sculpture of an illuminated steel and glass lightning bolt is going up in central Cardiff.

Called 'Alight', it was commissioned by insurance group Admiral, and will be located outside the firm's new 11-storey offices.

Artist S Mark Gubb, who lives in Cardiff, has created the artwork.

He said: "I want it to make people smile as much as I want it to hold its own in a part of the city with so much bold architecture."

Work is already underway to erect the sculpture between the Motorpoint Arena and Cineworld cinema.
