White House Christmas tree delivered

First Lady Michelle Obama was joined by her children Malia and Sasha to welcome the arrival of the White House Christmas tree on Friday.

Pet dog Bo also made an appearance as the 19-foot balsam fir made its way up the drive on a horse-drawn carriage.

The tree will be installed in the Blue Room, where it will be the centrepiece of the White House Christmas decorations.
