Christmas is often a time to visit family and loved ones - but as we cram into family homes the lack of sleeping space can quickly become apparent.

Some on social media have been using the hashtag #DuvetKnowItsChrismas to share photos of their unusual sleeping arrangements at relatives' houses.

The trend was started in 2011 by writer and musician Rhodri Marsden, who invites people to share the unusual places they find themselves sleeping as they visit family for Christmas each year.

One Twitter user from Cambridge shared some snaps of the camper van he is calling home. In an apparent nod to the festive period, the van has been decorated with a string of fairy lights.
