The Falkirk Herald has published three different front pages for the first time to commemorate the unveiling of The Kelpies.

Thursday’s edition of Scotland’s biggest selling local weekly newspaper will be prefaced by pictures of the gigantic equine sculptures by chief photographer Michael Gillen.

The Kelpies, designed by Glasgow-based artist Andy Scott, were officially opened last week and have attracted media interest from across the globe.

The Falkirk Herald has also produced an eight-page commemorative pull-out supplement to be included in tomorrow’s paper, which tells the story of how the sculptures, which stand next to the entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, adjacent to the M9 motorway, came to be.

Editor Colin Hume said: “For the first time ever at The Falkirk Herald we will be doing different versions of the front page.

“In addition, the video shot on the opening night by Michael has been used by numerous sites, including The Scotsman.

“One of Michael’s pictures was also chosen as the photograph of the day by @Earth_Pics, which is followed by 1.8 million people.”
