Guinness World Record adjudicator Anna Orford watches as the LEGO Group attempts a World Record for the largest wind turbine made out of LEGO bricks, at Liverpool ONE.

The Lego group now says it is running entirely on renewable energy after reaching its 100pc target three years ahead of schedule.

The company achieved its ambitious goal due to the completion of a 258 megawatt offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea, building a giant wind turbine made entirely of Lego to celebrate.

"We work to leave a positive impact on the planet and I am truly excited about the inauguration of the Burbo Bank Extension wind farm," said Bali Padda, CEO of the Lego Group.

The giant Lego turbine, built to mark the occasion, has broken the Guinness World Records title for largest Lego brick wind turbine. In total the model is made from 146,000 plastic bricks.
