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.
