IT took more than half a million plastic bricks to build the world’s largest Lego Christmas tree, now at St Pancras International station.
The ten-metre high tree, towering over shops on the main concourse, is made of 600,000 bricks and 172 Lego branches and took two months to build.
The tree – which will be illuminated tonight (Thursday) – was completed with 1,200 Lego baubles crafted by children at Edith Neville primary school, in Ossulston Street.
