Pink Floyd have re-enacted the artwork for their 1976 album 'Animals', which saw a pig flying above Battersea Power Station in London.

The publicity stunt took place this morning (September 26) to mark the re-issuing of the band's back-catalogue.

As previously reported on Gigwise, Pink Floyd commissioned a new flying pig because the original cover star had become damaged and was no longer able to fly.

A spokeswoman for the band told the Press Association: "Sadly, two weeks prior to the event the original neoprene glued pig was officially declared not airworthy and a brand new high-frequency welded PVC replica Pink Floyd pig has been made for the occasion."

When the band originally attempted the stunt, the helium-filled pig broke free on the second day of shooting and ended up in a field in Kent.
