The End of the Lego House

The Lego house is no more. Earlier today a demolition team moved in to take apart the world's first life-size two-story house constructed entirely from Lego.

The house was originally destined to be transferred to Legoland Windsor to be put on display for visitors of the theme park. However, Legoland pulled-out of the project because of the expense, estimated at £50,000, involved in moving the building.

Over, 2,500 users of the social networking website Facebook joined a campaign to save James May's Lego house; alas, no one came forward in time, before demolition commenced.

The house could not stay in-situ at Denbies Wine Estate as it would get in the way of its harvest.

Further bad news came today with the revealation that Fusker, a resident cat made out of Lego especially for the house, had gone missing. It is thought that one of the few members of the public that were granted access to the house on Sunday and Monday may have kidnapped it.

An appeal has been made on the Top Gear website, in the hope that the cat will be sent to:
