The offices of CGTN located in London after the British media watchdog announced the decision revealed the lights still on.

All the media broadcasters operating in the UK must have a licence attributed by the Ofcom on conditions of impartiality and protection of privacy.

CGTN has a right to appeal and apply for the licence later.
