According to ITV News the display consists of "eight high power search lights, 184 giant LED 'pixels', 68 colour changing moving lights, 184 strobe lights and ten of the world's largest smoke machines".

There's a different display every night, designed by London's Jason Bruges studio.

The lights will change every night until 31 December.

On New Year's Eve they will be co-ordinated with London's fireworks display.

Yup, that's pretty spectacular.
