Calling Lego enthusiasts of London: we've got a double whammy of good news for you. Lego is opening a flagship store in Leicester Square, which will open later this year. But that's not all. To celebrate the launch of the new shop, they've added a new Lego set, which is a scale copy of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The model is over 60cm high and the clock tower even has an actual bell, which you can access through the removable roof. Meanwhile, the real Big Ben is about to undergo a three-year repair programme, which is probably how long it'll take you to build the model if your Lego skills aren't up to scratch.

In other news, there's going to be a live stream of the Big Ben repairs.
