On the evening of Wednesday 23rd March, London’s major landmarks were lit up in the colours of the Belgian national flag as a mark of solidarity following the Brussels terror attack earlier this week.
The National Gallery, Tower Bridge, London Eye, National Gallery and the fountains at Trafalgar Square were all shiningred, yellow and black.
This afternoon, a 5-metre Belgian flag will be displaced on the central staircase in Trafalgar Square. Between 6pm and 10pm, people will be able to visit, leave flowers and light candles as a way of showing their respect to victims of the terror attacks.
