Recent anomalies observed in the B-meson sector may be one of our first promising hints of new physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM), suggesting that BSM may indeed have a different flavour structure than the SM. Leptoquarks, already hypothesised in the 1970s and predicted by many grand unified theories, are one of the preferred explanations of these tensions. It is also possible that they could be in reach at the collision energies at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN . These hypothetical particles can mediate flavour-changing-neutral-currents and enable violation of lepton flavour universality. In the spirit of leaving no stones unturned, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC have developed a broad and diverse leptoquark search programme, paving the way to a potential discovery that could address many of the unanswered questions in Particle Physics.
