A six-metre-high, 35-tonne ball of rubbish has landed in the Plaine de Plainpalais in central Geneva, where it will remain until the end of the month. The city authorities want to draw attention to the problem of littering.

The rubbish, which isn’t actually smouldering (the effect is caused by dry ice), was all collected from the streets of Geneva.
