LONDON (AP) - BBC World Service radio has broadcast its final news bulletin from its longstanding home at Bush House in central London.

The global service is leaving Bush House after more than seven decades for new quarters.

The final Bush House broadcast was read by BBC director-general Mark Thompson.

He praised Bush House as an "enduring beacon of truth and objectivity" and said it had been the scene of many great moments in BBC history.

The service will be relocated at Broadcasting House on Oxford Street as part of a consolidation drive.
