The 42ft Sitka spruce was erected yesterday morning at the Palace of Westminster. Parliamentary staff used a crane to unload and decorate the tree, which stands in New Palace Yard, close to Big Ben.

Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the Commons, said: “We really appreciate the kind gift from Forestry England, which serves as a beautiful symbol of hope and joy.”

Another 25ft tree has been delivered to Westminster Hall and a smaller one will stand in the Speaker’s House.

In January the trees will be recycled and sent to be chipped for use in composting.
