What takes 500 hours to build and is compiled of 60,000 pieces? Lego enthusiast Jeff Sims can answer that.

His hobby took him to new heights this year when he constructed a model of Newquay's iconic Headland Hotel, entirely in Lego.

He said: "A lot of my friends come to the house and are in awe of what I have achieved.

"I have been coming to the hotel since I was 18 years old. The Headland is instantly recognisable, it truly is an inspirational building."

It might be said that Mrs Sims is somewhat pleased that Jeff has decided to loan his Lego masterpiece for display at the hotel over the coming months, as her home has now been returned to her, along with every last minute of her husband's spare time.

After delivering the model to the hotel, he stayed with his wife to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.
