A world record has been set today (Sunday 8th July) as the final elements were placed at the top of a 32m high lego tower at Legoland in Windsor. Hundreds of people lent a hand to put together the gargantuan structure which was topped off with some Lego mini figures.
The tower is made up of over 160 sections using more than half a million lego bricks.
It beats the previous record, set in South Korea earlier this year, by just a few centimetres.
Zoe Cartell from Legoland says the structure took four days, and hundreds of people to build.

“We are delighted to reclaim the record for Britain. We last held it in 2008 when it was a mere 29.26 metres tall. We’re very grateful to the hundreds of people who helped create the tower, which is made from over 500,000 bricks.”
