Mini London burns to mark Great Fire of 1666
NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
A 120-metre long model of the 17th century London skyline was burnt to ashes on Sunday (September 4) to mark the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.
The fire began at a bakery in Pudding Lane on Sunday, September 2, 1666. Five days later, 80 percent of the city was burnt but less than 10 people died from the flames.
The sculpture was designed by American burn artist David Best, who worked in conjunction with Artichoke, a creative company that works with artists to display their work in public areas.
