Lasers and searchlight light up The Shard

Shard building launch, lasers and search lights

Shard building launch, lasers and search lights

BRITAIN’S tallest building was officially unveiled yesterday — with a dazzling laser display that lit up the London skyline.

Beams of light shot out of The Shard on the banks of the River Thames to mark the completion of the skyscraper’s exterior.

The view from inside is equally awesome. I was

one of the first journalists welcomed in for a sneak peek a few hours before last night’s breath-taking display, which was rehearsed days earlier.

My ears popped as I whizzed up the middle of the 1,016ft glass structure at a rate of six floors a second.

Although work on the inside is expected to continue into 2013, I was taken 800ft up to the viewing gallery.

It doesn’t open to the public until February but tickets go on sale today at a pricey £24.95 each for adults.

Spectacular … The Shard turns yellow

For that, you do get extraordinary 40-mile views in each direction from the site in Southwark.

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct bathed in light for trust launch

THE world-famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct has been bathed in light to mark the launch of a charity trust.

Glandwr Cymru (Canal and River Trust) is being officially launched today.

The running of the Llangollen canal, including the Pontcysyllte aqueduct world heritage site, will be passed to the new charity, which pledges to transform the historic canals and rivers of North Wales.

The charity is appealing for donations for projects to make the canal a haven for people and wildlife for years to come.

The aqueduct was beautifully lit in an evening event before the launch, to mark the start of a landmark 15-year government contract given to the trust to look after the nation’s waterways.

The trust is taking over from British Waterways and The Waterways Trust in England and Wales, the UK’s first major transfer of state run infrastructure into the charitable sector. Its patron is the Prince of Wales.
