Jim Hesbrook created some outstanding models made out of long matchsticks. His latest creation was of the recently fire damaged Notre Dame Cathedral which took him nine months to construct using 8,000 matches in total.

Jim and his wife Jean were this year's winners of the 'Best in Show' prize for their efforts.
