Giant monster resembling Virgin boss Richard Branson emerges from the sea

A Godzilla-like statue appeared emerging from the sea this morning – bearing a striking resemblance to Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson.
The eight metre tall (25ft) figure was erected overnight to the east of Bournemouth Pier as part of a Virgin Media PR stunt to promote its new ‘Big Kahuna’ package, which adds mobile to its TV/phone/broadband bundle.
It took a team of sculptors took more than 500 hours to design and produce the creature which weighs over six tonnes.
