Britain's darkest village with no street lights becomes illuminated for Christmas after a couple decorate their old tree which grew to 52ft after planting it in 1978

Britain's darkest village is lit up by festive lights after a retired couple decorated their huge Christmas tree which they planted as a sapling more than 40 years ago.

Avril Rowlands and her husband Christopher put the 6ft fir in their front garden after enjoying their first Christmas at their new home in 1978.

The tree has now grown to 52ft and towers above their four-bedroom detached house in the Worcestershire village of Inkberrow.

On Sunday (8/12) the couple celebrated the monster fir's 41st anniversary when they switched on the dazzling decorations.
