A family from Sheffield have erected an artificial tree that they believe to be the oldest in the country.

The fake spruce has been passed down from generation to generation for nearly a century - even surviving a bomb blast during the Second World War.

It was bought by Kay Ashton's grandmother at the Woolworths store in Sheffield in 1920.
