This article appears in today's Leicester Mercury (though without a photo - I nipped over to Highfields and took this one myself):

New lights help mark Ramadan
New Ramadan lights have been installed in three streets.
The lights were switched on in Nedham Street, Melbourne Road and St Peter's Road, in Highfields, Leicester, last night to mark the start of a month of fasting by Muslims.
New signs declaring "Ramadan Mubarak" (greetings) have also been put up.
They will change to "Eid Mubarak" to celebrate the festival at the end of Ramadan.
Yahya Thada, of Muslim Khatri Association, said: "The improved festive lighting will enhance the celebrations and allow the wider community to be part of them.
"Leicester will have the largest lighting in Europe."
