Hundreds queue to catch a glimpse of Christmas tree festival

Hundreds of people have queued to get inside a church in Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire earlier today to see this year's Christmas tree festival.

There are 1,500 trees on display at the event. Some visitors had travelled from abroad to see the festive display at St Mary's Church.

Trees have been provided by individuals, organisations and businesses.

The festival, which is now in its 16th year, started off with just a hundred trees.
