Cllr Robert Davis said: “Portrait artists have been a part of Leicester Square for a long time and of course they bring pleasure to visitors and colour to the area.
“We asked the artists to move temporarily while alternative pitches were provided during the refurbishment works.

There is no question of banning them – or any other group - but we need to look at the location and numbers of performers and entertainers going forward.
