This brick, however, is a limited edition – it was made (and signed) by Mayor of London Boris Johnson on a visit to Ibstock’s Chesterton factory last month.

The so-called 'Boris brick' was put up for auction at the Brick Development Association (BDA) annual awards dinner last week and raised £600 for the Construction Youth Trust.

Mr Johnson commented: “The Construction Youth Trust is a very worthy cause, working to enable young people to realise successful careers in a booming industry. I’m so pleased that so much money was raised.”
