Have your say

No, it’s not a Fathers For Justice campaigner - a figure from Madame Tussauds has scaled new heights, reaching the top of the Tower.

Spiderman climbed the attraction before swinging into action at his new home above Madame Tussauds on Blackpool Promenade.

The figure will be the attraction’s second Spiderman, positioned above the entrance to welcome visitors.

He has been designed specially to withstand the elements known to batter the Fylde coast.

Matthew Titherington, general manager of Madame Tussauds, said: “Where better to situate him than above our entrance protecting the attraction from super villains.”
