16th January 2017

London, England – January 16: London’s iconic Piccadilly Circus advertising boards are switched off, as work begins on their replacement. The screens have only ever been purposefully dark on a handful of occasions before, including the for the funerals of Winston Churchill and Princess Diana. The replacement, due to be switched on in Autumn 2017, will be one single LED screen, split between a number of advertisers.
