The dark November nights have been made a lot brighter at one London tourist attraction.

Kew Gardens have lit up their after-dark festive trail with more than a million individual bulbs, as well as thousands of lasers.

The Christmas At Kew event will run at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Richmond from November 22 until January 5.
