Falmouth shoppers wished early 'Merry Christmas'

Shoppers in Cornwall were surprised by a message on the front of a department store wishing them a "Merry Xmas".

The illuminated scrolling message was displayed prominently on the front of Trago Mills in Falmouth between Friday evening and Sunday morning.

A spokesperson for the store, which also has branches in Liskeard, Newton Abbot and Merthyr Tydfil, said it was a mistake.

They said an employee plugged in last year's illuminations by accident and assured customers the chain was not yet selling any Christmas trees or festive items.
