THEY’VE got the London Eye down south.

Now Doncaster has its own answer to the landmark ferris wheel – even if it is only for a few days!

A big wheel has been put in place next to Doncaster Market to operate throughout the duration of the St Leger Festival at Doncaster Racecourse. It will be in place until Saturday night.

A spokesman for Doncaster Council said the wheel was put up as part of the festival of events to mark the classic race.

He added: “It will provide a bird’s eye view of the town and aims to draw people into the centre of the market.”
