Guinness record set for world's largest LEGO sculpture
01 October 2016 Current Affairs: A new Guinness World Record for the largest Lego sculpture has been set in the UK, where a 13-metre high replica of the London's iconic Tower Bridge was created using an astounding 5,805,846 individual pieces. 

The structure beats the previous record by 470,646 bricks.

Laid end to end, the bricks used in the construction would stretch for almost 200 miles  the equivalent distance from Tower Bridge in London to Paris. 

The new record beats the previous title holder - a replica of a Star Wars X-wing fighter, built from 5,335,200 bricks in 2013 to promote the Star Wars: Clone Wars cartoon. 

The original Tower Bridge in London was built in 1886-1894. It crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and is about 244 metres long and 65 metres high.
