The festive feeling has reached Glasgow's George Square as the final bauble has been hung on the Christmas tree by the Lord Provost.

Having arrived on Tuesday, November 14,  the Norway spruce tree was erected with Glasgow City Council workers who started work on it ahead of Sunday's light switch-on.

And now Lord Provost Jacqueline McLaren has added the final touches to the giant tree by placing a red bauble on it from a cherry picker.
