Festive boats light up Bristol Harbour

Boatowners have been getting into the festive spirit with an illuminated parade around Bristol Harbour. More than 30 vessels from the Cabot and Bristol cruising clubs were decked out in lights. They formed a circuit of boats which spent two hours chugging around the waterway.

This was the first event of its kind in years - organisers say they're hoping to revive what was once an annual Christmas tradition.
