Cllr Jeremy Nettle, the new City Council leader, said:

"The lights are so lovely in the trees it seemed a shame to take them down when the City can be so gloomy in the winter months after Christmas.

"We have decided to keep the lights in place to brighten up these areas until spring comes. "

They also hope it will help to keep away the post-Christmas blues.

They were a big hit over the festive period.

The lights will remain in place until Friday 15th March 2019.
