Youngster Bailey Matthews, who won the hearts of the nation earlier this year when he completed a children’s triathlon without his walking aid, turned the lights on at Market Square.

People also gathered to watch the lights being switched on at the Priory Shopping Centre by celebrity guest Dai Bradley, who played Billy Casper in the film Kes.
