Residents and workers in London's Canary Wharf have had the chance to celebrate Chanukah in style after the area once again played host to a giant Menorah.
The 15ft high structure is currently standing tall in the area's Jubilee Park - rivalling similarly large Menorahs in Golders Green and Trafalgar Square.
It it the 14th year running that a Menorah has been installed in the area, which houses a working population of almost 100,000 people from all walks of life.
A number of companies based in Canary Wharf - including auditors KMPG and global bank Citi - have sponsored candle lighting ceremonies this year.
Canary Wharf Group's Danny Seliger said that the Menorah was a 'beautiful temporary addition to the surrounding lights at Canary Wharf'.
He added: "I would like to thank those local companies that are sponsoring ceremonies, and encourage people from the surrounding community to come down and take a look at the Menorah over the next few days."
