A Sheringham shop owner has put a technological twist on his festive decorations, by creating a 7ft tall Christmas tree made entirely from unwanted computer parts.
Clive Sanham, who owns PC Simple computer store in Station Road, came up with the idea for the digital display after accumulating a large stack of parts left over from repairs.
'I'd been thinking about doing it for about five years, but could never find the time,' he said.
The tree, which is made up of dozens of motherboards from machines ranging from modern laptops to 10-year-old PCs, was decked out with lights and baubles before being placed at the shop entrance, with Mr Sanham also fashioning a Christmas wreath from old memory chips and keyboard tiles.
'I've had a great response and it's got people talking - I think they are quite intrigued,' he said. 'It took me a whole day to make it, but I'm glad I did and will even think about making an animated one next year.'
