A couple from Huntingdon have built up an unusual festive tradition over the past quarter of a century.

Mike Addis and Catherine Weightman build a giant Lego model each year in the run-up to Christmas.

They have made something different each year for the past 24 years. This year's theme is a Victorian doll's house at Christmas.

They were helped with the huge construction project by their great niece and great nephew Kitty and Beau Pollard.
