ELY Cathedral's annual carol service is on course to be as huge a success as in other years.

At last year's service, staff were turning people away at the door to prevent overcrowding and a breach of health and safety regulations.

So this year, in order to meet demand, there will be two services on December 23 and 24, both at 6pm.

Michael Chandler, Dean of Ely said: "The cathedral has always been a magnificent setting for services and concerts and even more so at this time of year.
