This morning (October 15) Activision, makers of the popular dance-music computer game DJ Hero, installed the world's largest turntable into St Pancras International Station, London.

The stunt was organised to mark next Friday's release of the DJ Hero 2 game. BBC 1xtra DJ and former DMC champion DJ Blakey was on hand to drop tunes to keep the early morning computers entertained. Meanwhile, passers by got the chance to play around with the oversized DJ Hero deck and indulge in a bit of larger-than-life, amateur turntablism in front of the rush-hour crowd.
