Late night shopping could take on a whole new meaning in Canary Wharf from next year as shops and bars could open 24 hours a day.

Canary Wharf Group is considering the move in response to round the clock tube services that will be introduced across London in 2015.

Canary Wharf Group's chief administrative officer Camille Waxer, told Retail Gazette: "It will certainly make us consider 24 hour trading for future retailing at Canary Wharf.

"It will definitely provide an opportunity for more people to visit Canary Wharf with the extended hours so in theory it should result in additional sales."

Canary Wharf has developed hugely in the past five years, now with more than 300 shops and bars on the estate.

The initial 24-hour weekend Tube network will be comprised of regular services on the Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria, Central and Jubilee lines.
