Xmas every night on York's Millennium Bridge
The festive lights get switched on this Thursday evening in York - but it's Christmas every night on the splendid Millennium Bridge, over the Ouse on the southern edge of the city centre.
The peds'n'bikes-only bridge is lit up at dusk in gradually shifting colours.
It's quite a romantic place to stop and enjoy, say, a knock-down trifle from the supermarket over the road.
It's constantly busy with cyclists (and, being York, you only have to wait a few minutes for a tandem) and dog walkers.
When a white dog passes, the lights make them glow trippily in green, pink, turquoise and lemon. Our Sainsburys trifle looked pretty psychedelic, too.
