Recognise these London landmarks?

Famous London landmarks have have been recreated in minature for a new exhibition - and they are all made entirely out of lego.

Creator Warren Elsmore made St Pancras station piece by piece out of 180,000 bricks. It even includes lego commuters (along with a ghost) and the inside of the Eurostar platform with people queuing up to take the train across the Channel Tunnel.

His minature model of the London 2012 Olympic Park comes with its very own version of Anish Kapoor's famous Orbit statue, along with a lego Aquatics Centre and Water Polo Arena.

The models feature as part of the Brick City exhibition at Newcastle's Centre for Life.
