* IMPORTANT NOTE: A memorial service and candle lit vigil will be held on Trafalgar Square to commemorate a man who was murdered on the Square two years ago. The event will take place between 19:30hrs and 21:30hrs. It is expected that 5,000 mourners along with family and friends of the victim will attend. This area should be avoided during this time to allow those grieving to have uninterrupted use of the site on the anniversary of the murder.
