Crowds of people went down to the former Debenhams store in Commercial Road to see the festive decorations be turned on last night!

The Lord Mayor, Councillor Frank Jonas, and Kings Theatre panto Dame and creative director Jack Edwards were joined by fellow panto and Love Island star Amy Hart to switch on the dozens of silvery illuminations lining the busy street.

The News had a photographer down in Commercial Road to capture all the action.

See if you can spot yourself in our gallery from last night.
