A £1.6m seafront tower initially dubbed the "vertical pier" has opened to the public.
The Redcar Beacon is part of a £75m redevelopment of the town's seafront.
The structure has drawn criticism from some residents who had favoured a horizontal, rather than a vertical, pier.
Love it or hate it there's no disputing that Redcar's vertical pier adds a touch of colour on a wet rainy evening so I just had to take a shot.
