An imaginative builder has created a Christmas tree with a difference.

Richard Magnus, 43, director of R J Magnus Builders, built the 10ft high festive display out of cones in his North Walsham garden.

The 51 orange cones were placed around a steel structure.

Mr Magnus, who lives on Aylsham Road, said: 'It is a bit of fun and a bit different. I have had lots of comments about it. I see people walking past doing a double take. My family think it is amazing.'

It is the first time Mr Magnus, who is married with five children, has made a tree from building materials.
