Coronavirus: ‘Lego helped me get out of bed’

A woman who was furloughed from her job said Lego helped her to get out of bed.

Charlotte Tyrer, 25, was working as an events sales executive for a hotel in Nottingham before she was placed on furlough because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The fine art graduate has created more than a dozen portraits of celebrities, including Billie Eilish and Joe Exotic, using thousands of Lego bricks.

A video she shared of her David Bowie has been viewed more than 80,000 times.

“It’s given me a reason to get up in the morning and get started and get creative,” Charlotte, from Wollaton in Nottingham, said.
