Lego's profits rise amid continued resurgence

Danish toy-maker sees rise in profit as demand from China drives sales.

    The world's second largest toy-maker, Lego, has seen profits rise as the firm, known for its signature building blocks, continues strong sales.

    On average, ten of its toy sets are sold every second of every day.

    And the plastic bricks are gaining ground in new markets such as China, where the company plans to build a factory soon.
