Hovering over Hull these are the amazing new scenes captured by drone.

Produced by aerial filming specialists Octovision, the new video features sites across Hull, ranging from homes and neighborhoods to new buildings being constructed.

And it shows some of the first aerial footage of the recent City of Culture events including Made in Hull, the opening fireworks display and the Blade.

The video, produced for the Hull Daily Mail Renewables Awards, is accompanied by music track Leaf by Leaf by emerging Hull band Pavey Ark.

The footage also features comments linked to the city's Renewables Industry including Siemens UK boss Juergen Maier and Prime Minister Theresa May.

The video was filmed over several weeks by Octovision boss Chris Fenton based at C4DI.
