A 120-metre long wooden model of the City of London in the 17th century was built to go up in flames on the River Thames in a dramatic retelling of the story.

Made up of 190 mini buildings including iconic landmarks, churches and factories the huge sculpture was set on fire to mark the finale of a series of events to commemorate the Great Fire of London.

It told the story of the fierce four-day blaze which started at Thomas Farriner's bakery on Pudding Lane and destroyed 13,200 homes and left 65,000 people homeless.

The project designed by American artist David Best involved months of working with young people across London boroughs.
