Standing on the corner of Dagnam Park Drive, onlookers might be puzzled.
Is it a bird, is it a plane plane...an armadillo?!
No, it’s a �4million giant caterpillar!
As pictured, work on Havering’s state-of-the art My Place youth centre is well underway.
The wooden beams show how the building is taking its caterpillar-like form, a symbol for change and development in the borough.
