Best photos from this year's Cosham Christmas lights switch-on

Families enjoyed an evening of festive fun at the Cosham Christmas lights switch-on with a Thomas the Tank Engine funfair ride, a German sausage stall, and live performances of music and carol singing.

The lights were switched on by the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth – Councillor David Fuller –  as well as Pompey footballers Brandon Haunstrup and Alex Bass, and members of the King’s Theatre panto Aladdin.
