Bath's Christmas Market has announced it is expanding this year.

There will be 30 more chalets at the festive event compared to last year, taking the total to 200.

Organisers say the site will also be spread over more streets to ease overcrowding.

The event is expected to bring an extra £21million to Bath's economy.

The Christmas market will open on the 23rd of November.

Two lanes had to be closed until the tree was removed from the carriageway:
