Lego super fan designs dream kit: A red phone box

A Lego superfan is living his childhood dream after designing a new kit for the company.

John Cramp, from Countesthorpe in Leicestershire, beat thousands of other Lego fans with his winning idea – a red London phone box – which is now being manufactured and sold by the Danish company.

Mr Cramp submitted his design to Lego Ideas, a scheme in which budding Lego designers compete to have their concepts made a reality.

The 43-year-old, who works at the Mountsorrel and Rothley Community Heritage Centre, said winning the contest was “one of his biggest achievements”.
