'Art Relay Baton' piece unveiled

Ahead of the London 2012 Games, a 20-metre piece of Olympic-themed art's been travelling around Essex.

The 'Art Relay Baton' is part of the Essex Summer of Art trail bringing together communities around the county.

Essex artists were invited to make a contribution, that piece of the scroll was then rolled and passed on to the next area taking part.

In support of the fast approaching London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the baton - one long continuous piece of art - has been opened in Rochford.
