‘Britain’s worst Christmas tree’ replaced

Image caption Hundreds gathered to watch Camborne’s new Christmas tree get switched on

A town has unveiled an “amazing” new Christmas tree after last year’s fake one was dubbed “the worst in Britain”.

The ridiculed tree in Camborne, west Cornwall, did not even make it to the big day as it had to be removed when its star was stolen and wires exposed.

Earlier, hundreds watched the switch on of a “beautiful” 25ft traditional spruce.

Last year’s cone-shaped tree, damaged at least 10 times, was described as “absolutely rubbish”.

Organiser of this year’s big switch-on, Sharron Lipscombe-Manley described the “wonderful real tree” as the centre piece of Christmas celebrations.

Camborne resident Chris Gilkes said the previous tree was “absolutely rubbish” but the new one was “amazing”.

“It’s a real tree and it will give more spirit to this place than last year,” he said.

Michelle Dawson, from nearby Redruth, said: “Last year the tree was a bit embarrassing really – the cone-shaped one, it was awful.”

She added that last year’s vandalism “had its benefits” as “we’ve got a gorgeous new real tree, and it looks beautiful”.
