Shooters American Diner in March has revealed their entry in the town's annual festive window competition ran by the mayor, Cllr Rob Skoulding.

The riverside restaurant has crafted the display purely out of recycled materials found in the kitchen and from their food and drink deliveries.

Claire Smethurst, diner co-owner, said: "This year we decided to counter the waste that the food industry is notoriously accused of.

"We did this by using everything from the diner for our window display. We turned boxes into the coke truck and used coffee filters as snowflakes."

The diner even used bottle tops as hanging decorations to complement the snowy display which sits proudly in the front window.
