Fleetwood is leading the way by being the first in the country to have a solar powered Christmas trees.

It comes after Fleetwood Town Council opted to trial a unique eco-friendly festive light show.

Thirty-eight of the high-tech trees have been installed on lamp posts on Lord Street and North Albert Street and will set a Christmassy scene by harnessing sunlight. The light is collected via a solar panel either mounted above the branches of the trees or on the underside of its planter.

The trees have been rented for the festive season from a Derbyshire firm.
