Artist Alex Chinneck did not hang about for his latest eye-catching piece of work - he made a Vauxhall car defy gravity instead with an installation that left many commuters open-mouthed.

Situated close to the London Eye, the upside-down car has proved a massive hit on social media and appeared on shows from the BBC's own One Show to NBC Today in Los Angeles.

Vauxhall collaborated with Alex and director Chris Tubbs to offer an in-depth, access-all-areas look at how the illusion - to be found in the Hungerford car park at the Southbank Centre - was created.

The documentary shows the birth of the idea in Alex's studio, visits to the Vauxhall tech centre, the steel fabricators and the amazing work done by the scenic artist team to bring the art installation to life.
