Three tonnes of Christmas cake has been paraded through the German city of Dresden on the back of a horse-drawn carriage, to celebrate Stollenfest.

Thousands of people turned out to watch a giant version of the city's most famous product, Stollen, take to the streets.

The roots of this festival dates back to the 18th Century, as Bill Hayton reports.
