Work is underway using 250,000 tonnes of sand and 100 palm trees to create London's biggest 'urban beach' at Brent Cross this summer.

People can tuck into fish and chips and watch a Punch and Judy show, or eat an icecream while enjoying the sights of the North Circular Road.

Fairground rides, a log flume and rollercoaster will also entertain visitors to the beach, which will run from July 10 to September 2.

Tom Nathan, general manager at Brent Cross, said: "I'm extremely excited to be hosting London's biggest urban beach at Brent Cross. It’s the perfect summer day out, with something to keep all of the family entertained."
