Thousands of people lined the streets of Norwich for the festive light switch on.

Crowds of people wrapped up warm with handheld lights joined Norwich City Council for its annual Christmas event.

This year saw the Britain’s Got Talent, father and son duo, Tim and Jack Goodacre, of Eccles, push the plunger to switch on the lights.

Tim said: “We are so excited to be here, we have come to see the switch on before, but I’m sure it’s much different when you’re the one actually doing it!”

Once the plunger was pushed, lights at City Hall, Jarrolds and the Tunnel of Light were switched on for the public to enjoy.
