People in Swindon have received a festive gift after a tiny Christmas tree appeared on the town's famous Magic Roundabout.

The addition has attracted some ridicule from residents because of its size.

The tree is fully decorated but its small stature means it has gone unnoticed by many people.

The tiny tree is in sharp contrast to a 50-foot version put up by the council in 2008.

That tree was so big that its base broke and the lights switch-on had to be delayed.
