Aylesbury's Christmas tree missing! But it's OK - it's being replaced!

Aylesbury's Christmas tree disappeared yesterday.

First, the lights vanished off the tree at the top of Market Square during the day and then the tree itself vanished.

The noticeable gap sparked rumours of lights being stolen and a drunk person climbing the branches.

The gap where there was once a tree...

But today we've heard that the real reason for the disappearance is that town centre managers were not impressed with the original tree, which arrived three weeks ago.

So they asked the suppliers to install a new one, which should have gone in yesterday for a seamless transition.

That didn't happen, but we will be getting a new Christmas tree today!
