Here is the moment local teen Ryan Smith pressed the switch to illuminate the Christmas tree lights in Skegness town centre.

It is estimated that over 10,000 people turned up to the event, headlined by special guest Ryan Smith following his battle back to recovery and return home after a serious head injury, while cycling without a helmet.

A flutter of 'snow' falls as the Christmas lights are switched on outside the Hildred's Shopping Centre, Skegness.

Skegness Coun Carl Macey who attended the event said: “The event had a real community feel with lots of volunteers, local business and organisations taking part to make it a very special occasion.”

Events continue in the centre of town on Saturday and Sunday, November 29 and 30 outside the Hildred’s Shopping Centre with a Victorian Christmas market from 10am-4pm.
