As the iconic Beatles Abbey Road album picture celebrates its 44th year this week, fans still stop traffic to recreate their own version of the band's final album cover.

Almost half a century later and it's a residential street in North London that thousands of fans visit every year to recreate the picture of the Beatles final album cover, Abbey Road.

The popularity of the crossing has led Abbey Road Studio to set up a live webcam, where people from all over the world can watch fans recreate their own version of the cover everyday of the year.
