In pictures: the rainbow road on London Bridge

Kate Lloyd

Nobody really likes Mondays, right? They're the longest, drabbest, dullest days of the week. Have you looked out of the window this morning? IT'S SO GREY OUTSIDE. 

But, over on London Bridge, things have taken a turn for the colourful. A 300-metre rainbow carpet has been rolled out on the pavement used by 150,000 people every day. The carpet even has a secret message – it reads 'I love Mondays' when it's viewed from way up high.

The carpet was designed by BBC Radio DJ Gemma Cairney for a new project called Spark Your City. Run by Kipling, the movement's plan is to 'spark happiness into everyday life' with creative women from more than 50 cities taking part.

The carpet's not the first rainbow road that's come to London, there was a rainbow zebra crossing at Arsenal tube station last September as part of a campaign against homophobia in football.
