On the same day, Ocean Outdoor also ran a campaign praising all frontline critical workers such as teachers, delivery workers, firemen and police.

This was broadcast on London’s Piccadilly Lights every hour in the run up to the Light it Blue broadcast and featured messages of thanks.

As well as the Piccadilly Lights, Ocean broadcast the celebration on its screens across 11 other UK cities.

Tim Bleakley, chief executive officer of Ocean Outdoor, says: “These are extraordinary times and people are doing incredibly difficult jobs to keep our people safe, cared for and our cities and the country running as best as is safely possible.

“This is our way of drawing attention to their selfless work and show our gratitude. It’s times like these that a thank you goes a long way.”
