A new doughnut sculpture will be unveiled in Springfield, Canterbury this afternoon. 

The six-tonne landmark replaces an earlier version which was damaged by fire in 2009. 

The original doughnut was gifted to the town by 20th Century Fox in 2007 to help launch The Simpsons movie, in tribute to the special role the fictional Springfield has played in the popular cartoon and to celebrate Homer Simpson's love of doughnuts.

A new fire-proof doughnut would be unveiled at 3pm.
