The other day I noticed London Bridge had lost it's gorgeously groovy red coloured night
time illumination - but only on one side. Anyone know what's going on? I wanted to try and get a photo of it all lit up red - only when I got down there, the west side was lit in boringly normal colour, while the east still had the red lighting. Does anyone know if the red lighting is coming back to both sides? Or whose in charge of it? And whether it's red for any particular reason? Thanks.

I believe all the London Bridges were lit in red lights to commemorate Armistice Day last November.
My own opinion is that that should have been for that day only, however for whatever reason the coloured lights have been left on and obviously are now only reverting to normal in the case of London Bridge.
Maybe in futere we should ask for green for St Patrick's Day etc etc etc!
