More than 350,000 people are expected to pack into the streets of Lincoln over the next four days as the annual Christmas Market gets underway.
The 280 stalls at the market are expected to help bring in millions of pounds to the local economy. This year a controversial one way system for pedestrians has also been introduced to help ease the congestion seen last year. Kate Hemingway reports.
