Families have started a new trend to cheer themselves up - digging out the Christmas tree and decorating it for Easter.
Louise Connolly, 34, usually dresses the garden up for an egg hunt, but thought she'd go one step further and the popular festive centrepiece out the cellar.
The mum said she decorated it with son Arthur, six, and daughter Iris, four, to entertain them and make the house more cheerful.
She's one of a whole host of people putting up Christmas trees and covering them with season-appropriate Easter eggs, bunny ears, yellow chicks and spring flowers.

"But given the current situation and the craziness of it all, I thought we'd try and cheer the house up a little bit, because we're all stuck here for the foreseeable future.
"And it gave the kids something to do.
"They thought it was hilarious! I just want to make this time memorable for them in nice ways."
