Huge spruce chosen to take pride of place in Parliament Square at Christmas

Forestry workers hope felling a spectacular tree that will stand in Parliament Square will give people hope for Christmas this year. The 30-year-old 43ft spruce was spotted five years ago growing in Redesdale in Kielder Forest, Northumberland, and selected as a perfect example of the species that will look good from all angles.
