In what is possibly the most absurd use of the word ‘mini’ we’ve ever heard, the world’s largest image of a Lego minifigure has been unveiled in the form of a maze. It's made entirely out of maize plants and it’s roughly the size of eight football pitches.

Marking the 90th anniversary of the Lego brand, the fully navigable maize maze covers 15 acres and features a Lego character more than 150m tall. The 'minifigure' is seen breaking his way through a wall of bricks – although you have to view it from quite a way above to be able to see that.
