In video: Norway gives Boris Johnson a giant Christmas tree
Norway’s Foreign Secretary Ine Eriksen Soreide made the gift during bi-lateral talks.
What do you give the man who has everything? In the case of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson at this time of year, the answer seems to be a giant Norwegian Christmas tree.
Norway’s Foreign Secretary Ine Eriksen Soreide was at The Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London for bilateral talks and helped unveil the tree.
During a ceremony to switch the lights on the tree, Mr Johnson revealed that the UK had gained much from Norway – including the name for the London borough of Hackney which he said was taken from the Norwegian island Hackenaye.
