A bird's eye view of London from Ilford's tallest vantage point was enjoyed by a picture-perfect competition winner on Friday.

Moses Kpayser, of Pembroke Road, Seven Kings, was taken to the top of the 367ft North Building of apartment block Pioneer Point courtesy of Empire Property Group.

He and his sister-in-law Andrea Sarrell enjoyed the stunning views after Mr Kpayser entered the Recorder's In the Picture competition.

It asked readers to send in their eye-catching pictures of the two towers, with four judges choosing the winner last month.

Mr Kpayser said: "I haven't stopped talking about it since Friday. It was a great experience.

"To see London from that height was really fantastic." The trip was courtesy of Empire Property Group.
