    City centre Christmas tree branded an 'absolute joke' and a 'disgrace'

    A council’s 50ft Christmas tree has been branded a “disgrace” and an embarrassment for the city after it was apparently left looking like it had been ‘attacked with silly string’. The festive centrepiece in Leicester has become an ongoing saga after officials at the city council were forced to abandon efforts to decorate it two weeks ago because the tinsel was too heavy, leaving just the top section decorated. Around 20,000 people attended the city’s festive lights switch on, but many took to social media to criticise the appearance of the tree and its lights.
