Merry August 29th: Shoppers stunned at Cambridge Tesco's early Christmas tree

It's a debate that surfaces every year: how early is too early to put up your Christmas tree?

Well even those most eager for the festive season would probably agree that one Tesco store in Cambridge has been a bit premature.

Shoppers at the Newmarket Road branch took to social media to express their shock after spotting a 25ft tree being decorated... on August 29th.

But Tesco was quick to clear up the confusion. It said the tree was put up "purely for the purposes of recording a Christmas advert".

A couple from Huntingdon have built up an unusual festive tradition over the past quarter of a century.

Mike Addis and Catherine Weightman build a giant Lego model each year in the run-up to Christmas.

They have made something different each year for the past 24 years. This year's theme is a Victorian doll's house at Christmas.

They were helped with the huge construction project by their great niece and great nephew Kitty and Beau Pollard.
