VIDEO: Emmerdale stars visit Boston

The stars have been out tonight (Friday) as the Pescod Square Christmas lights were switched on.

The Mayor of Boston Coun Paul Kenny helped crowds and Endeavour Radio wake up Santa before pressing the button and turning the lights on.

Emmerdale stars Lesley Dunlop, who plays Brenda Walker, and Laura Norton, who plays Kerry Wyatt, then - a little bit later than planned - visited the square.

Beginning in the O2 shop they presented winners with their prizes, before moving onto the stage where they answered questions from the crowd before ending up at Oldrids Restaurant.

The video above shows the lights switch on and a brief interview with the stars by Standard reporter Daniel Jaines.
