Chris Smith from Altrincham has developed an unusual obsession. He's combining his love of football and Lego. And for the last 3 years he's been building models of British football stadia out of toy bricks. So far he's built 40 out of the 92 Football league clubs including Preston North End's Deepdale, which he says was challenging getting faces laser printed onto the bricks.

The directly elected Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, is throwing his hat into the ring to become Labour's candidate for the Liverpool Walton constituency.
It's possible the area's current MP, Steve Rotheram, wont stand in the General Election as he's currently running to become directly elected Mayor of the City Region, covering Merseyside and Halton.
If Mr Anderson, who's led Liverpool as council leader and Mayor since 2010, won the Walton seat, it could mean yet another election in Liverpool - this time to replace him as Mayor of the city.
I would hope that the people of Liverpool can understand how I have come to this decision and that party members both nationally and locally will understand that my heart's desire is to fight for the people of Liverpool and Labour's vision for running the country.
"This general election, as a chance to stand up in Parliament for Walton and Liverpool, is an opportunity I must take."
Responding to the news, the Liberal Democrat leader in Liverpool called for the city mayoral post to be abolished.
Cllr Richard Kemp described the role as 'redundant' once the city region mayor is elected.
"The fact that Joe Anderson is seeking to leave the council and become an MP confirms the view that we expressed at the budget meeting of the council that the Liverpool City Elected Mayoral position was redundant given the election of a City Region Mayor.
"If Mayor Anderson is successful in getting the nomination we will move a motion to remove the position at the first possible opportunity."
