A NEW sculpture created by South Heighton artist Christian Funnell has been installed in Newhaven Harbour.

The artist finished putting the new Cormorant into the water on Wednesday August 29 during high tide. It is seven foot tall and made of galvanised steel.

The sculpture was paid for by Newhaven Town Council and cost £6,000.

Newhaven Conservation Trust asked the town council to pay for a new one, after the old cormorant sculpture began to show its age.

The bird has been a feature of the harbour since Christian installed the original one 12 years ago. What do you think of the new cormorant? Email samantha.clark@sussexnewspapers.co.uk
