IT took the Imeson family around three weeks battling against some foul weather to set up their wonderful Christmas display - but this year it is being outshone by a tiny new arrival.

'Biscuit' the baby fallow deer is the latest addition to Trevor Imeson's festive display at his home in Sessay near Thirsk.

Every year for the last two decades, Mr Imeson has adorned his house with hundreds of lights and decorations to bring Christmas cheer to all who visit.

But Mr Imeson didn't bank on his display having a new star attraction in the form of tiny bright-eyed Biscuit who was born less than two-weeks-ago.

The family have kept their pet fallow deer Sparkle, Elsa and Pluto for many years and Biscuit has been borne to Sparkle in time to delight this year's visitors to the Christmas display.

Mr Imeson said: "Everybody wants to take it home.

"They all say how cute he is."

Mr Imeson puts the display together with the help of his daughter Lynda and each year it raises hundreds of pounds for charity from visitors who donate to the collection box.

All the money raised is split between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Forces Children's Trust which helps treat youngsters who have lost loved ones on tours of duty.

Despite now being in his seventies, Mr Imeson said he is happy to put the display together to spread some Christmas joy.

He said: "It is hard work, we had some rotten weather with the rain this year.

"My daughter is a big help, she did more than me this year.

"I've added the odd bits and pieces to it this year but nothing major because it has hard to find good quality stuff these days.

"I've had people come back every year which is nice - some people say it isn't Christmas until they have come here and seen the display."
