British jigsaw puzzle maker Dave Evans had hand cut the wooden pieces from images of Queen Elizabeth's jubilee. He says it needs to be put back together by next week, and he's hoping some of the queen's men and women can help him restore it.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. The day after British jigsaw puzzle maker Dave Evans finished his 40,000-piece puzzle, it was leaning on a wall and suddenly had a great fall. This biggest ever hand-cut wooden puzzle is a montage of images form the queen's jubilee and it's due to be displayed in one of the queen's ballrooms next week.

So Evans is asking for help, hoping that some of the queen's men and women can help him put it back together again. It's MORNING EDITION.
