Workers on the £2billion King’s Cross Development are burning the midnight oil.

Staff on what is currently the largest construction site in Europe under single ownership are working around the clock to get Zone B up and running.

The site adjacent to King’s Boulevard - a road created by the development - will house Camden’s new Town Hall, a leisure centre, swimming pool and office space.

A new piazza, St Pancras square, will also be formed.

Internet search engine giant Google is set to build new UK headquarters on the other side of King’s Boulevard.
