The first major decommissioning project in the North Sea has been completed with the removal of the Brent Delta platform from its legs.
It has been lifted on to a huge purpose-built ship which will transport it to the north east of England to be scrapped. The legs will stay in place.

The Shell platform lies 115 miles north east of Shetland.
