A sculpture depicting a dollop of whipped cream topped with a cherry, a fly and a drone has been unveiled at London's Trafalgar Square.

The installation of the Fourth Plinth - home to a rolling commission of public artworks - was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The dystopian artwork by British artist Heather Phillipson, titled The End, is the 13th Fourth Plinth commission and the tallest so far at nearly 31ft (9.4m).

Passers-by will be able to use their mobile phones to live-stream what the camera-equipped drone can see or people can log in to a website remotely - meaning the installation can be experienced digitally.

Described as representing "exuberance and unease" and a "monument to hubris and impending collapse", the sculpture will stay in place until spring 2022.
