ONE of Glasgow's tallest tourist attractions has been dismantled.
The big wheel which has been in George Square since November last year took its final spin on Sunday after an extended stay of five months.
Workers needed a giant crane to remove the 132ft tall wheel – Glasgow's answer to the London Eye.
However, Great City Attractions, the firm behind the wheel, is already in talks with Glasgow City Council to discuss when it can return.
Nigel Ward, head of global site development at the firm, said: "Glasgow is such a great venue for an attraction and the wheel has been a big success.
"Discussions on the possibility of returning to the city with a wheel are on-going."
The ride, which has 30 gondolas, or pods, that seat up to eight people, arrived in the city as part of Glasgow Loves Christmas.
It was situated next to the temporary ice rink and the fairground rides and its lease was renewed twice due to its popularity.
Thousands of people have taken a spin on the attraction which offered panoramic views of the city and its surroundings.
The lease was extended to March following the attraction's winter stint – then the owners decided they wanted it to stay on for an extra two months after that because of the good weather.
