Los Angeles has honoured Batman star Adam West by beaming the Bat Signal on the city hall tower.

Hundreds of fans - some in costume - cheered on Thursday night as mayor Eric Garcetti and police chief Charlie Beck turned on the iconic circle of light with a bat-shaped silhouette.

West played the Caped Crusader in the campy 1960s TV series and died last week at 88.

In Batman comics, movies and TV shows, the Bat Signal is a spotlight with the shadow of Batman's winged emblem that is shown on the night sky to call for Batman's help.
