Giant newt sculpted from leftover soil at Wepre Park (BBC News)

A giant sculpture of a great crested newt has been created from leftover soil in a Flintshire park.

The countryside ranger team at Wepre Park, Connah’s Quay, created the feature from soil dug up during drainage works.

The park is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for the endangered species.

The sculpture, completed by local contractor Arwyn Parry, will be seeded with wildflowers.

Ranger Tim Johnson said: “The project took a bit of planning to make sure that it was feasible but as it developed the skill and dexterity of Arwyn really made things simple.

“The result is just what I was hoping for.”
