The final touches are made to a 120 metre-long (390ft) wooden sculpture of London’s skyline from the seventeenth century as it is moored up on the river Thames in London on August 30, 2016. The sculpture titled London 1666 and designed by David Best will be ceremonially lit and burnt in the middle of the Thames on September 4 as part of celebrations to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.
