Lyrics from The Beatles’ hit ‘All You Need Is Love’ are to be written on the walls at Luton Airport.
The words written by John Lennon, will be inscribed on the walls of the arrivals walkway after the lyrics were voted ‘the greatest words of all time’ in an internet poll.
The poll was conducted by Luton First and thousands of people voted.
The fab four beat off competition from Winston Churchill with “Never in the field of human conflict” and The Bible's “Man does not live by bread alone.”
Paul Kehoe, managing director of Luton Airport told the BBC he was delighted at the choice. He said: "The winning quotation is a great choice as the words will send out an immediate, positive and life affirming message to all visitors arriving in the UK at London Luton Airport."
Tony Edwards, PR for Luton First, added: "It was interesting to see that the title of a 1960s' song should be in the forefront of public imagination more than 40 years on."
