People from around the Selby area braved heavy rain to see ITV Calendar correspondent Jon Hill switch-on the Christmas lights in the little village of Burn.

It was the village’s sixth annual celebrity switch-on and included a Christmas market and Christmas tree festival in Burn Methodist Chapel as well as a free buffet provided by landlord Andy Howdall in The Wheatsheaf pub.

Jon, who was presented with a scroll and giant key giving him freedom of the village and appointing him honorary Viscount of Burn, said he had often visited Burn to see friends and cover news stories and he was always impressed with the huge community spirit for a place with so few residents.”
