Stars can be seen treading the red carpet at Leicester Square’s film premiers. The Square is the heart of the West End entertainment district like Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood,  it is surrounded by floor-mounted plaques with film stars names and cast handprints.

But Leicester Square hasn’t t always been a glamorous location and in1979, when rubbish collectors went on strike, it was used as an overflow dump, earning it the nickname of ‘Fester Square’.
