Lynn got firmly into the festive spirit on Sunday afternoon as its Christmas lights were switched on.

Our picture shows eight-year-old Thomas Paterson pressing the button alongside borough mayor Carol Bower and Father Christmas.

The ceremony followed a packed afternoon of entertainment and activities around the town centre.
