The model even includes a depiction of the fox that was found living on the 72nd floor of the skyscraper in February 2011.

Meanwhile London Bridge residents and workers have been gazing skywards with wonderment as construction workers climb to the very top of the Shard to fix the final panels.

The tower received a royal visitor on Thursday when the Duke of York visited the construction site.
