New Look Leicester Square

A new look Leicester Square is being unveiled this evening after a 15.3 million pound renovation.

The Square, famous for it's film premieres, has been at the centre of construction work for the past 17 months.

It now has twelve thousand square metres of granite paving, stainless steel railings and a water feature that sends jets of recycled water two metres into the air.

Boris Johnson said: "This fantastic makeover is an integral part of the legacy that London 2012 will bring, helping to rid the square of the blight of anti-social behaviour and creating a must-see destination for the thousands of people who visit each day."

The Mayor will open the Square tonight, launching a five-day programme of events to celebrate the revamp.
