A lego exhibition in Cumbria is charting major turning points in our country's colourful past.
The exhibition at Rheged, Penrith, brings to life some of British history's most iconic scenes from the past 2000 years.
Over half a million lego bricks were used to create the displays.
Over 1,000 school children performed the famous Icelandic chant from Euro 2016 to kick off the Cumbria School Games at the Sands Centre in Carlisle.
Students will compete in a number of sports and games throughout the day, before the awards ceremony this afternoon:

Royal Mail has apologised for failing to deliver to addresses in a Cumbrian town because of "swooping attacks by seagulls".
Four properties in the town didn't receive their mail on Tuesday 5 July due to the attacks.
These kinds of attacks do occur at this time of year as the gulls are nesting and rearing their chicks. Normal deliveries resumed on Wednesday.
The safety of our people is paramount to Royal Mail and these swooping attacks made it difficult for the postwoman to continue to do her job.
Any customer who has a concern about their mail delivery can contact Royal Mail Customer Services on 03457 740740.
Richard Madeley's takes on our one minute Q&A challenge.
Richard Madeley started his career in television at Border nearly 40 years ago, and today he's been back in Cumbria to promote his new career as a novelist.
His latest book is set in the Lake District in the hot summer of 1976.
ITV Border's Matthew Taylor went to meet him.
The television presenter and former ITV Border reporter Richard Madeley is in our region promoting his latest novel.
Richard Madeley's first television job was on Lookaround nearly 40 years ago, before he became a household name presenting This Morning.
He has based his new work of fiction, 'The Night Book', on his time living in Cumbria during the heatwave of 1976:
I just remember this experience as a young Londoner, an Essex Eastend boy, of falling in love with the Lakes. Just falling in love with the Lake District. I'd never been here before the weather was so incredible it was like being in the Italian Lakes. Windermere was like Como. I remember the Carlisle evening news headline Windermere warmer than the Med. The Lakes heated up in a superheated summer. It was almost a magical time for me.
