The Trafalgar Square Christmas tree has been lit up, for the 65th time.

The tree is given as a gift from Norway to London every year as a mark of thanks for British support during the Second World War.

The tree was selected in Norway last month by a team of experts, The Lord Mayor of Westminster, councillor Angela Harvey, and the Mayor of Oslo, Stian Berger Rosland.

It was then transported 700 miles across the North Sea on a ferry to Immingham, Lincolnshire, and then carried by lorry from the docks to Trafalgar Square.
