Admire the Trafalgar Square Christmas Tree

As anyone whose parents sat them down in front of Blue Peter as a child will know, Norway have given the people of London a Christmas Tree every year since 1947, in thanks for Britain's support the Second World War.

This year's tree is as good as ever, standing over 20 metres high and hand-picked from the forests around Oslo. It will remain in the Square until just before the Twelfth Night.
