Cornwall's Cotehele Hall builds giant Christmas garland

At 60ft in length and boasting no less than 30,000 flowers, the Christmas garland in the Great Hall in Cotehele, Cornwall, is impressive.

Cotehele has featured festive decorations for centuries but for the first time The National Trust has invited visitors to volunteer in order to help place all the flowers on the wreath.

The garland will take two weeks to build and will be on display until New Years Eve.

Louise Hubball reports.
