White House Christmas tree delivered

First Lady Michelle Obama has taken delivery of the White House Christmas tree.

She was accompanied by daughters Malia and Sasha, and pet dog Bo, as she inspected - and smelled - the 19ft Fraser fir from Peak Farms in Jefferson, NC.

Mrs Obama quickly gave it the presidential seal of approval, saying "I think we'll take it".
