Sculptors put the finishing touches to their work at the fourth annual London Ice Sculpting Festival.
Eight teams from around the world carved designs from 2m ice blocks outside Canary Wharf in London's Docklands. To celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the first design created was a giant diamond.
Members of the public were invited to create their own sculptures.
