The BBC Television centre has closed its doors for the final time after almost 45 years of bulletins.

Mishal Husain signed off the last ever news bulletin from the west London studios, marking the end of an era.

The iconic building, which has housed a number of shows including Blue Peter, Doctor Who and Strictly Come Dancing, opened in 1960 and the news first went out from the site in 1969.

During its four decades on air, news bulletins broadcast on BBC One have attracted audiences of up to 10 million people a day.

The entire BBC news operation has moved to Broadcasting House in central London.

Staff working on Newsnight, World TV, the news website and the BBC Red Button news pages, as well as those on radio news other than BBC Radio 5 live have already relocated to their new home in Salford.

Television Centre, which was sold for £200m in 2012, will be redeveloped into hotels, flats, a cinema and office space in 2014.
