Since 1947 the people of Norway have provided London with a tree out of gratitude for the support Britain gave the country in World War II.

This year the annual tree lighting ceremony will take place in Trafalgar Square on 5 December.

Decorated in traditional Norwegian style with hundreds of white lights, the lighting of the tree helps mark the start of the festive season in the capital.

The tree provides a focal point for the Christmas Carol singing programme which runs from nine to 21 December and will remain in Trafalgar Square until early January 2014.
