London's annual Christmas lights display has been switched on - but will illuminate Oxford Street for reduced hours this year amid the ongoing energy crisis. 

Energy consumption will be cut by two-thirds in comparison to last year, according to the New West End Company. 

The festive switch-on is a big event in the capital's calendar as the run-up to the holiday season officially begins. 

Hadas Kulcsar, campaigns and events manager at New West End Company, which represents 600 retail, restaurant, hotel and property owners across the central London shopping area, said shorter hours are a 'great step forward' in a bid to make Oxford Street a 'leading sustainable district'. 

The festive switch-on is a big event in the capital's calendar as the run-up to the holiday season officially begins, with many celebrating Christmas for the first time without Covid restrictions

Oxford Street's Christmas stars are this year comprised of 300,000 LED lights made from recycled polymer, which the New West End Company said are 75% more energy efficient than standard bulbs
