The council building has been lit up in red, white and blue in celebration of the England women’s Euro 2022 success. 

It comes following the lionesses 2-1 victory over archrivals Germany on Sunday, when an extra time goal by Chloe Kelly won the team their first major trophy and ended the country's’ 56-year wait for success at a football tournament. 

The borough’s new mayor, Councillor Ankur Shiv Bhandari, said it “absolutely brilliant” to see the Times Square building illuminated in the England flag colours. 

“A celebration of the great win by our lionesses,” he added.

Council Cllr leader, Paul Bettison, expressed his congratulations to England's "brilliant lionesses" and praised their "top class" performance.

"They are an inspiration to everyone and have shown that through teamwork, hard work and ability, anything is possible," he added.

The building’s atrium lights have previously been lit up in the colours of Ukraine’s flag to show support at the beginning of the Russian invasion, as well as in purple and yellow for national Raising Awareness of Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day and in the six-coloured flag to celebrate gay pride.
