The tenacious journalist, while covering the opening of a new Lego exhibition at Titanic Belfast, used a replica of the Mona Lisa, made from the popular children's toy, for his closing piece to camera in his report.

He was supposed to put the final block in place to complete the work, however, instead he stumbled and knocked the piece over which sent it flying.

Luckily Richard's quick reactions saved Mona from harm and him from several painstaking hours of trying to put the piece back together.

She will be taking her place in the exhibition as intended, no doubt putting a smile on the attraction's visitors if not Mona herself.

The Lego Brick City exhibition features many of the world's most recognisable landmarks all made out of the best-selling children's toy.

London's famous St Pancras Station, which measures 5ft tall and is 12ft long and contains over 180,000 blocks is one of the many stunning pieces on display.

Also, especially commissioned for the three-month long event, is a Lego reproduction of the Titanic Belfast building.

The event runs in the Titanic building from Saturday until Sunday 13 July.
