Archie the border collie invents a new sport at a wet car park in Bloxwich.
Under construction at a house at Formby, Merseyside, each step of the apparently floating helix (secured by two post-tensioned, 12.9-millimeter steel cables running through the centre of the stairs) is formed from a single block of stone.

This little guy appeared in the Enchanted Bit of the new BenBulben walk on Saturday morning. Checked to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating as a crowd gathered and yes he’s definitely there. Called Sligo County Council and Coillte and they don’t know anything about it. After a bit of consultation we’ve decided to call him Dave. Also I think I saw him move.
