LA’s skyline has been lit up with the Bat-Signal to honour Batman star Adam West, who died last week. Mayor Eric Garcetti and LA Police chief Charlie Beck were expected to be at the public event at City Hall, which started about 21:00 local time (05:00 BST).
The signal originated in the DC Comics strip as a sign that the caped crusader was needed to save the day.
Thousands of fans are joined by actor Burt Ward to illuminate the bat signal in Los Angeles in memory of TV’s late Caped Crusader Adam West, who died last week. Ward, 71, who played Batman’s sidekick, Robin, said the other half of the 1960s dynamic duo spent his life ‘trying to make this world a better place’.
