The BBC World Service has broadcast its final news bulletin from its historic home in London's Bush House, after more than 70 years.

Services have been re-locating to the BBC's new building, Broadcasting House, near Oxford Circus, since March, with the central newsroom the last to leave.

The final bulletin was read by Iain Purdon at midday (BST) on Thursday 12 July.
