Los Angeles lighting Bat-signal for Adam West

Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck will lead the Thursday night ceremony, which is set to take place at 9 p.m.at 200 N. Spring St.

Actor Burt Ward, who was the Robin to West's Batman, was among the huge crowd who turned out to pay tribute to the actor less than a week after his death.

West found it hard to land other acting jobs after the series ended because he was forever linked to the Batman role but eventually became the voice of Mayor Adam West on "Family Guy" and played himself for years on "The Fairly Odd-parents".

He saw a resurgence in his career when he accepted a gig as the voice of the mayor of Quahog, who also had the name Adam West, in Seth MacFarlane's animated hit Family Guy. Let's just hope that Batman vs.

Elsewhere, an angry protester attempted to rally the large crowd to march on the Prime Minister's residence on Downing Street. Extra fire safety checks were immediately organised across local authorities, including Camden, Newham, Croydon and Redbridge.

The signal originated in the DC comics strip, Batman movies, and TV shows.

Garcetti announced the event on Twitter and added the hashtag, #BrightKnight.

West died last week from leukemia at 88.

Late Saturday, a company in Charleston, South Carolina also launched the bat signal to honor the late actor. West was most well known for his portrayal of Batman in the 1960s.

"He would tell you that we're all on this planet for such a very short period of time [and] to make the most of every day you're here", said Ward. I'd turn to the people of Los Angeles, but today, with our Mayor, we get to turn to the Caped Crusader.

Adam West was born in 1928 in Walla Walla, Washington, US. Adam West will be honoured with a bat signal tribute in the Los Angeles night sky this Thursday (15.06.17).

In his signature role, West played Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, the crime-fighting, costumed Batman, a popular comics character who came to life on the ABC series.

"I grew up watching him", the 29-year-old said.
