VIDEO: Cat telehandler takes UK's biggest ever puppet for stroll

A Caterpillar telehandler has been used to hold up the UK's biggest ever puppet as it went for a stroll around Edinburgh.

The 'Big Man', based on a mythical Scottish giant, is 8m tall, weighs 600kg and is built from polysytrene and steel.

The Cat telehandler moved the puppet around at 1mph. The Big Man will be touring towns and cities across the rest of Scotland.
