TV presenter and adventurer Ben Fogle joined 13 families at Manchester's Legoland Discovery Centre over the weekend - helping to raise awareness for the new Lego City Forest Police play theme.

Fogle was named as the first face of the toy brand back in April. He was joined by the competition winners who were tasked with designing and building the new window display, as well as being able to catch up on Fogle's adventures.

Children designed, created and displayed their own Lego City Forest Police-inspired builds and scenes, with the aim of winning a weekend with Fogle.

"I had a fantastic time with all of the families and I'm blown away with the creations that the children have designed," Fogle commented. "Lego has always been on my dream wish list to work with, so being able to lose myself in the world of Lego for the day along with the families, has been a wonderful experience."

A Lego spokesperson added: "This is the biggest building day in history for Lego City and it's fantastic that Ben Fogle has led this venture with us. He has really made all the winning families dreams come true this weekend."
