The big freeze gripped Canary Wharf this weekend as crowds flocked to the London Ice Sculpting Festival.
Sculptors from around the world braved the freezing conditions throughout the weekend to chisel out some dazzling designs and show off their skills to the public.
The festival attracted 11 teams who competed against each other in a series of competitions as crowds looked on in awe as ice blocks were transformed before their eyes.
Festival co-organiser Carol Cordrey said: “Wood Wharf has been a very successful location for the biggest Festival to date.
“I’ve been delighted by the public’s response. They have come in their thousands and loved seeing the ice sculptures created and talking to the sculptors.”
