Six children took part in a LEGO building competition at the Giant’s Causeway on Saturday.

Organised by the National Trust, the competition was held in celebration of the Giant’s Causeway being chosen by the Roald Dahl Literary Estate to host a unique LEGO version of Sophie from The BFG.

The competition was judged by the North Coast’s real life giant, surfer Al Mennie and two children from Ballytober P.S., Charlie Brown and Joshua Dorrans. Ballytober held their own LEGO building competition in school, which was won by Charlie and Joshua.
