THE new-look design for the Spinnaker Tower is expected to be signed off by the end of the week, according to city council leader Donna Jones.

Councillor Jones says the authority is awaiting a decision from Emirates over what the revised colour scheme should be.

The Tory councillor decided to scrap the original red and white plan for the tower, right, put forward after Emirates secured the landmark’s naming rights in a deal worth £5m, following a backlash from residents.
