Abbey Road studios given listed building status





London's Abbey Road studios, where The Beatles recorded many albums, has been made a listed building, protecting it from plans to radically alter it.

The venue has been given Grade II status - the second-highest category - for its role in shaping British music.

Culture Minister Margaret Hodge listed the studios on the advice of English Heritage saying it had "produced some of the very best music in the world".
