Junk mail turned into sculpture

An artist has created an unusual exhibit in her Tyneside garden out of unwanted junk mail.

Anne Cohen, 54, from Newcastle, has placed all her hand-delivered junk mail on a large metal spike outside her front door.

She started on 1 January and now the artwork is over 5ft tall.

The mother-of-four said she came up with the idea to get people talking about the volume of junk mail delivered in her neighbourhood.

Mrs Cohen plans to continue adding to the pile until the end of December, because she wants to find out just how much junk mail one household receives in a year.
