The Midlands is gearing up for one of it's biggest celebrations of the year. It's Diwali, and tens of thousands of people are heading into Leicester tonight for what's widely regarded as the largest celebration outside of India.
It's not only an important time for families, it's also vital for the economy. Leicester's Golden Mile has suffered in recent years, and Diwali is the busiest time of year for many shops and businesses.
