Crowds come out for Christmas lights switch-on

PAUL Daniels and his wife Debbie McGee pulled in the crowds last night as they turned on Aylesbury's Christmas lights.

The couple, who are starring in a production of Peter Pan at the Civic Centre in December, officially switched on the town's Christmas lights at 6.50pm last night.

There were also cheerleaders, carols from Turnfurlong School, an Elton John tribute band and a water fountain in Market Square.
