Several areas of London will be illuminated over the next few days as a series of light installations take over the capital.

More than 50 works by UK and international artists are being displayed as part of Lumiere London.

In 2016, the event attracted more than 1.3 million visits to the West End, Mayfair and King's Cross.

Organisers have increased the footprint of Lumiere for 2018, with installations in areas including Westminster, Waterloo and Trafalgar Square.

On the South Bank, 40 luminous triangles form an interactive walkway.
