Beatles fans will cross Abbey Road this morning 40 years to the minute after the band created one of the most iconic album covers of all time.
Hundreds of Beatles fans have gathered to mark the 40th anniversary of when the zebra crossing shot from the band's Abbey Road album cover was taken.
...The crossing, in St John’s Wood, north London, has attracted increasing numbers of sightseers in recent years, and figures obtained from Westminster Council under the Freedom of Information Act reveal a rising number of accidents in the area.
Now, councillors in the ward are calling for changes. They are in discussions with the council’s traffic department over ways to make the crossing and the nearby junction safer.
Among the options is to simply dig up the black and white stripes and flashing yellow beacons and install another crossing further along the road.
