Leeds United star Jamie Shackleton was one of the special guests on hand to help turn the Christmas lights on in Meanwood on Friday evening.

Organised by Meanwood Valley Partnership, the event took place in the square located on Green Road in the centre of Meanwood with club youngster Shackleton one of many guests invited to help switch on the festive lights.

The 20-year-old answered a few questions on stage about the 2019/20 season so far before the lights were switched on at 6pm.

An exciting addition to the event this year was The Vortex Tunnel for guests in attendance, dubbed 'the world's ultimate walk through illusion' and there was also a special performance from a local school choir.

Organiser, Sue Sheard, said: "The lights switch on event is a lovely community event that really kicks off Christmas in Meanwood."
